English:  Baroque art — an art movement and style that started c. 1590 in Rome, and spread to most of Europe.

  • The Baroque movement developed from Renaissance art and followed the Mannerist art movement, and c. 1725 was followed by the Rococo art movement.
  • The Baroque style used extreme motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur from sculpture, painting, architecture, garden design, literature, and music.
