BAROQUE. Baroque: the ornate age (1600-1750). Baroque art succeeded in marrying the advanced techniques and grand scale of the Renaissance to the emotion, intensity, and drama of Mannerism, this making the Baroque era the most sumptuous and ornate in the history of art.
In Catholic countries like Flanders, religious art flourished, while in the Protestant lands of northern Europe , such as England and Holland, religious imagery was forbidden.
