Baroque (1590-1790)

Resulting from the Italian Rebirth and the Mannerism the Baroque comes from Italian barroco who indicates a figure complicated rhetoric. In Portuguese barroco indicates irregular pearls.At the 18th French century one names “baroque” any form of art which does not correspond to the traditional taste of the time, in the direction of nonin conformity or too exuberant… the largest sleeping partners of the Baroque art are the Church and the Court in Europe of the south and the middle-class of the cities in the Netherlands. It is thanks to the construction of churches, palate and convent which the painting of decoration can open out. The painting of ceilings and gigantic frescos having for goal the space illusion makes it possible the Baroque to be fully expressed. The enormous use of pictorial means and the exubérance which prevails are supposed to move, to even persuade if not convert to fill with enthusiasm the public… In the Netherlands the Baroque especially dominates in dead natures and the landscapes.
