ARTH 256 Baroque: Popes, Kings & Busin

The 17th century was a period of extraordinary change, when the political, religious, and cultural life of Europe was in upheaval. This class will examine ways that status and power were fashioned, national identity was shaped, Catholics were distinguished from Protestants, and public and private life were defined through the work of artists such as Caravaggio, Bernini, Velazquez, Rubens, Rembrandt, and Vermeer.
