The Baroque Era (1600-1750)
The visual arts during
the Baroque period were celebrated as never
as individual patrons such as popes, kings, and emperors began commissioning
for the first time in history. The Baroque style of art, which blended
elements from the naturalist and classicist schools, is characterized by
grandeur, vitality, and emotional exuberance. Baroque painters include
Michelangelo Merisi (Caravaggio), Annibale Carracci, and Rembrandt van Rijn.
In addition, a particular Baroque style of painting which arose in Rome in
the 1620s culminated in the impressive painted ceilings and church decor of
Pietro da Cortona, Guido Reni, and Il Guercino.
