1600 — 1725

The drama of deep color and shadow

In response to the political and societal change of the reformation and the counter-reformation the Baroque was a calculated image campaign by the catholic church to keep and retains its members, power, and influence. The byproduct of this cultural campaign/branding is a redesigning of how cities are planned, built, and structured. To make itself attractive the church commissioned grandiose buildings, sculptures, paintings and piazzas to promote itself and show off its power.
