Areas of study: Spain, Germany, Flanders, Italy, and England Terms: Scumbling-the application of a fine layer of paint with a very dry brush.

Rubenesque- in reference to the figures of the ethereal women painted by Flemish painter Rubens. They strayed from the classical female figure in their roundness and robust figures. Baroque Architecture (1600-1750) Baroque Architecture began in Rome and spread to Germany, Flanders, Holland, and Spain. The original meaning of the term Baroque is "irregular, contoured, or grotesque" and in part, reflects Baroque compositions, which typically involve gestural rendering, multi-curved arrangements, and a quality of superreality or romantic mysticism. The Baroque style is flamboyant, which relates to a historical era involved with the divine right of kings, the "Period of Absolutism," and counter revolution for the Catholic Church. The beginnings of art to serve to nobility are here, but Baroque Art also embodied the genre art of the common man. Rococo Architecture (1700-1789) Rococo Art was a domesticated from of the Baroque style-it was decorative, gay, ornamental and free--a style to glorify and glamorize the wealthy and noble classes. Present in France, Italy, Holland, Germany, Austria, and England, it also spread to America and other colonies. Baroque - An architecture of flamboyance and swaggering excess that characterized the 17th century. Taking as a starting point the elements of classicism, Baroque architects gave their buildings an unprecedented elaboration, creating particularly dramatic spatially complex interiors heighten by ornamentation and by the use of bold lighting effects. From the French transileteration Portugese word, barlocco, irregular pearl shape-round and unpredictable shape

In the 16th and 17th centuries, there is a splintering of the Catholic Church into various branches of Christianity-Lutheran, Presbyterian, Protestant, etc. Europe sees a tremendous amount of exploration by all major countries-to the New World and the Asian continents. With this exploration comes new commerce/trade and wealth into most major cities, especially port cities. The paintings are now painted in larger proportions to reflect the subject matter. Religious subject matter still plays a role, but not as it did during the Renaissance.
