Kanwal Mirza Humanities 1301 004 Chapter 10 9-30-07 Why do we call the Age of the Baroque an era of piety and extravagance? The Age of Baroque is called an era of piety and extravagance because those were the central themes of all the landmarks created in this time period. (pg. 268) o Most landmarks were founded on Christian themes and inspired by texts of the Bible but they were presented in a dynamic and extravagant way. (pg. 268) o Paintings had complexities, artificiality, intensity, and bold colors. They also had distortions and daring handling of space. (pg. 269) o Music was also different, although it was still church-based. (pg. 270) o Fine architecture as usual was best demonstrated in the building of churches but now the churches were ornately embellished with materials such as marble, stucco and bronze. (pg. 271) o Baroque sculptures appealed more to the senses than the intellect. They were not stationary and told stories and held visual monologues with their audience. They were much more expressive and not as realistic. They may be exaggerated or disproportional.
