  • Baroque style featured "exaggerated lighting, intense emotions, release from restraint, and even a kind of artistic sensationalism“.
  • The style started around 1600 in Rome and spread to most of Europe.
  • Baroque art did not really depict the life style of the people at that time; however, "closely tied to the Counter-Reformation, this style melodramatically reaffirmed the emotional depths of the Catholic faith and glorified both church and monarchy" 
the baroque
  • is a period of artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, literature, architecture, dance, and music.
