How to recognize Baroque art.

Another good video and lesson from SmART History.

Once referred to as a deformed pearl, “baroque” was used to disparage the artists who reformed the lessons of the renaissance. By adding dramatic realism, bold light and dark contrasts (chiaroscuro), and physical and emotional immediacy, baroque art comes to life.

The list of artists associated with period speaks for itself; Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer. Historically these artists raised the bar of craftsmanship that stills moves us today.
