Italian Baroque Painting in Rome
Lecture no. 30 from the course: A History of European Art
Taught by Professor William Kloss | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
Annibale Carracci and Caravaggio, covered in the previous two lectures, formed a bridge from art of the 16th century to the 17th century. They are also considered founders of the 17th-century style called Baroque. You study artists who embraced this style, which exemplifies the artistic revival in Italy after the religious and political disruptions of the 16th century.
