Transcript of Baroque Era

The Baroque Era Baroque: is an artistic style prevalent from the late 16th century to the early 18th century. Architecture
The architectural movement during the Baroque Era started in the early 17th century in Italy. It took the ". . .humanist Roman vocabulary of Renaissance architecture and used it in a new rhetorical, theatrical, sculptural fashion, expressing the triumph of absolutist church and state. New architectural concerns for color, light and shade, sculptural values and intensity characterize the Baroque. Church of the Gesu

Located in Piazza del Gesù in Rome São Francisco de Assis in São João del Rei, Brazil, by Aleijadinho, 1777 A New Begining Around the year 1600, the demands for new art resulted in what is now known as the Baroque Era. The term Baroque was derived from a Portuguese word meaning "a pearl of irregular shape." It was initially used to imply strangeness, abnormality and extravagance, applying more to art than music. The appeal of the Baroque style turned consciously from the witty, intellectual qualities of 16th century Mannerist art to a visceral appeal aimed at the senses. It employed an iconography that was direct, simple, obvious, and dramatic. The Baroque age, did not only demand new art, but also new music, architecture, plays, literature, and philosophy. The Arts Two great asrtist that stand at the head of the Baroque tradition are Caravaggio and Annibale Caracci.

The music during the Baroque era did exactly that. The music during that time was based on order, ". . .The fundamental order of the universe. Yet it [was] always lively and tuneful." One of the most influential individuals in the music industry during the late 1600's and early 1700's was Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach was born on March 21st, 1685 in Eisenach, Saxe-Eisenach. The youngest son of Johann Ambrosius Bach, a town musician, from whom Bach learned to play the violin and the rudiments of musical theory. Compared other major composers, Bach's life and career were confined to a limited geographical space. Born and raised in Thuringia, he never went farther north than Hamburg and Lübeck, or farther south than Carlsbad but that, certaintly, did not stop him from becoming one of the most recognized composers of the Baroque Era. Music Caravaggio, one of the most revolutionary artist of his times, was born in Sept. 28, 1573, in Italy. His works caused public outcry, because of their realistic and dramatic nature. Annibale Carracci was born into a family of painters on Nov. 3, 1560, in Bologna, Italy. He and his family members opened a studio together until 1595, when Annibale, who was by far the greatest artist of the family, was called to Rome by Cardinal Odoardo Farnese to carry out his masterpiece, the decoration of the Farnese Gallery in the cardinal's family palace. It has been said that Caravaggio's and Annibale's work are very similer.
