(inspired by later work of Michelangelo and Donatello) The more dramatic, the better!

Johann Sabestian Bach; Jean- Baptiste Lully; Domenico Scarlatti; George Frederick Handel Slide 5 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.
