The Baroque Style

The Baroque style brought new levels of naturalism and emotionalism to Western art. It featured dynamic contrasts of light and dark, an expanded sense of space, and the theatrical staging of the subject matter.

Caravaggio and Gentileschi explored a variety of illusionistic techniques to draw the spectator into the space and action of the pictorial representation.

Bernini challenged sculptural tradition by combining illusionism, naturalism, and implied movement. He brought a flamboyant style to the city of Rome, both in his fountain sculptures and in his designs for Italian Baroque churches.

Italy’s Catholic churches became ornate settings for the performance of ritual. Bernini’s The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa and Pozzo’s ceiling for the church of Sant’Ignazio achieved new heights of illusionistic theatricality.
