Europe in the 17th century saw the explosion of a new style of art that was dramatic, theatrical, emotional and grand. Enhanced by the powerful patronage of the Catholic Church, the consolidation of absolute monarchies throughout Europe which brought a great deal of wealth and interest in building massive structures, and a new interest and broadening in the explorations of the world, Baroque Period, as this style became known, profoundly influenced the arts of the century from painting and sculpture to architecture and music.
In this Arts and Influences Seminar, “Emotion, Drama, and Illusion: Those Baroque Masters!” led by art historian Barbara Horlbeck, we will examine the great masterpieces that emerged from Europe and the great masters who created the paintings, sculpture and architecture of the time – from Gentileschi, Caravaggio, and Rembrandt to Bernini and Borromini.
Join us at The Charleston Library Society September 21st and 22nd from 9:30 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.! The Arts and Influences 2-day Seminar costs $175 for members of the Library Society and $200 for non-members.
Barbara Horlbeck, M.A., is an independent researcher, adjunct instructor of art history, International Study Leader for the Smithsonian and the National Trust, and founder of Arts and Influences.
