Star Wars Grand Admiral Thrawn Art History - Baroque Art Print

Beginning in central Italy around 1600, the baroque art movement emphasized drama, grandeur, tension, and exuberance. Often featuring an emphasis on narrative and character, the baroque movement was very straightforward, often eschewing the mystical or more ambiguous elements of the classical styles preceding it. Most notably, artists such as Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi featured dramatic scenes with harsh lighting, graphic imagery (such as Gentileschi’s famous Judith Beheading Holofernes) and heavy use of shadowing.
