The Magnificent Age: Art, Life and Baroque

One of the most dynamic styles to emerge in the wake of the Counter-Reformation was the Baroque.


When Martin Luther published his 95 theses in 1517, it was not only a challenge to the perceived corruption of the Catholic Church, it was an act which prompted the transformation of the religious, socio-political, and artistic landscape of Europe. The Baroque lasted a century and manifested differently in Italy, Spain, and France, where it produced the most extraordinary artists and architects including Caravaggio, Bernini, Velasquez, Poussin, and Borromini.

The Whore of Babylon

In this lecture, you will explore the context of the Counter-Reformation and the subsequent growth and dissemination of the Baroque style, a new visual rhetoric – one full of drama, heroism and emotion – that proved a decisive alternative to Late Mannerism.
