Baroque Art : 

Baroque Art In the arts, the Baroque was a Western cultural period, starting roughly at the beginning of the 17th century in Rome, Italy. It was exemplified by drama and grandeur in sculpture, painting ,literature, dance, and music. Baroque art is characterized by great drama, rich deep color, and intense light and dark shadows. As opposed to Renaissance art, which usually showed the moment before an event took place, Baroque artists chose the most dramatic point, the moment when the action was occurring.

The most luxurious materials were chosen, including the velvet, the brocade and Damascus upholsteries, the semiprecious stones and ivory.
