Baroque Art and Catholicism
This particular page is designed to serve as a source for your Second Paper Assignment.
It in no way presumes to give anything more
than a rather skimpy selection of some of the greatest artists
working in the Baroque period (roughly 1550 through 1620). The
criteria for selecting individual works for inclusion on this site
was twofold: firstly, are the works characteristic of the Baroque
style and subject matter, and secondly, do they illustrate the
important relationship of works of art with the Catholic Reformation
(sometimes called the Counter-Reformation) which inaugurated by the
Council of Trent ((1545-1566).
