By James Smith
Baroque was a certain type of art that wasassociated with many different styles and artistsin the late sixteenth century to the earlyeighteenth century.
It’s meaning is unclear (it may have been usedas a term to describe irregular, strange etc.).
May have came from the Portuguese word
or the Spanish word
meaningan irregular shaped pearl.
Baroque art started off as a way of the RomanCatholic Church to show Church doctrines tothe illiterate more so than the educated.
 This idea came during the time of the Councilof Trent and the Reformation.
It was to be both doctrinally accurate as wellas visually/emotionally appealing.
It was a way for the Roman Catholic Church to“win” back power and influence.
