Abstract :
Considers the prevalent themes of Baroque and Rococo artistic production through the dominant institutions of the day. The ideologies of the Counter-Reformation Church, the court of Louis Quatorze and the mercantile economy of the Calvinist Dutch are implicit in much of the painting, sculpture and architecture of the epoch. Interprets works emanating from England, France, the Low Countries, Italy and Spain. Several of the over-arching themes of the text have to do with theory, considering how the terms Baroque and Rococo have been employed by critics, scholars and art historians. Discusses elements of rhetoric, the deployment of styles in the 17th and 18th cs. for the purposes of persuasion and pleasure, and reflects on some of the theories actually discussed during the period. Includes background information on the politics, wars, religious upheavals and artistic milieux. ;
