One of the gems of European art is the Baroque movement, which began in 17th century Italy. As well as fine art, the Baroque style encompasses sculpture, dance and literature. The architecture of the period is extremely grand and many palaces were built in this style.
This emotional and dramatic style was approved of by the Roman Catholic Church for its often religious themes and is known for its complexity. Color is used to dramatic effect. Baroque was also loved by the Italian Medici dynasty. The word "Baroque" translates as "rough or imperfect pearl", showing its luxurious qualities. Famous artists of this style include Rubens, Caravaggio and Velazquez. Bernini was one of the most important sculptors and his work inspired later 18th century artists across Europe.
