Baroque art refers to the style of art that emerged in Europe in the 17th century. It is characterized by its ornate and elaborate forms, dramatic use of light and shadow, and a sense of grandeur and theatricality. Baroque artists often used dramatic compositions and exaggerated forms to create works of art that conveyed a sense of drama and emotion. Baroque art was often commissioned by the Catholic Church and European monarchs, and was used as a way to convey their power and influence. The Baroque style had a significant impact on Western art and continues to be celebrated for its beauty and grandeur today.
