Spanning the 17th and early 18th centuries, the Baroque period of European art history is known for its ornate extravagance and pictorial splendor. Rejecting the restrained, anatomical style of the Renaissance, the Baroque masters pioneered dynamic new poses that captured figures in motion, dramatic contrasts between light and dark to enliven paintings with chiaroscuro, and awe-inducing architecture decorated with extreme embellishment. Below, discover paintings, prints, and sculptures from the Baroque era, from Rembrandt van Rijn’s detailed etchings to Jakob Marrel’s floral still lifes.
