PojerHorace Greeley HS Chappaqua, NYBaroque 1600 1750.Art historians use the term to denote the style associated with 17th century painting, sculpture, and architecture. From a Portuguese word barocca, meaning a pearl of irregular shape. Implies strangeness, irregularity, and extravagance. The more dramatic, the better!Baroque Style of Art & Architecture Dramatic, emotional. Colors were brighter than bright; darks were darker than dark. Counter-Reformation art. Paintings & sculptures in church contexts should speak to the illiterate rather than to the well-informed. Ecclesiastical art --> appeal to emotions. Holland --> Real people portrayed as the primary subjects.Famous Baroque Artists/WorksMichelangelo Caravaggio (1573-1610)Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680)Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640)
