The Arts

The Counter Reformation and revival of the Catholic Church heavily influenced art and culture throughout Europe in the 17th century. Intense drama, bold colors, dramatic lighting, and heightened realism characterized the baroque painting style that emerged. Join graduate student lecturer Rachel Kase in a lively talk in the galleries on the role of religion and politics in works by 17th-century masters including Velázquez, Rubens, and Gentileschi.
