The Magnificent Age: Art, Life and 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.


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

Rome and Milan

In this lecture you will see how artists from all over Europe flocked to the Eternal City to study its architecture and to gain experience in its architects’ studios. Learn how Rome underwent many changes from periods of austerity to the instigation of grand papal schemes. Milan’s Cardinal Carlo Borromeo was one of the most influential figures of the Counter-Reformation, described by an early biographer as an ‘austere, dedicated, humourless and uncompromising personality.’ Trace his legacy for the Baroque aesthetic.
