Explore the baroque age during the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries through the works of famous painters, sculptors, architects, and musicians. With great insight and sensitivity, these artists reflected the turmoil of their times, characterized by a loss of faith in man, God, and previous knowledge as well as the exciting, creative process of rebuilding this faith on sturdier foundations. Insightful narrative, magnificent music, and stunning color photographs present a vivid and memorable portrait of the age. The program gives an overview of religious and political conflicts in sixteenth century and explores artwork by Michelangelo and other artists. It also looks at the influence of the Catholic Church on art and architecture and studies regional influences in Spain, Holland, and France. Includes Teacher's Guide
