Transcript: Things to Look for in Baroque Art: Images are direct, and dramatic. Depictions feel physically and psychologically real. Emotionally intense. Extravagant settings and ornamentation. Dramatic use of color. Dramatic contrasts between light and dark, light and shadow. Baroque art has continuous overlapping of figures and elements. Common themes: grandiose visions, ecstasies and conversions, martyrdom and death, intense light, intense psychological moments. The "psychological pain of man" is often found to be in both art and architecture Baroque architecture is characterized by large, magnificent buildings, typically asymmetrical and flowing. The oval was usually employed.

Stodgy Jupiter became a purse; the maiden raised her skirt above her knees in showers of coins to catch him on the run. That was the doing of some duenna star, --a star without a duenna it can't be-- Phoebus, get her help, since you're the sun.
