  2. 2. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>baroque is derived from the Portuguese word &quot;barroco&quot;, Spanish &quot;barroco&quot;, or French &quot;baroque&quot;, all of which refer to a &quot;rough or imperfect pearl&quot;, though whether it entered those languages via Latin, Arabic, or some other source is uncertain. </li></ul>

  4. 4. <ul><li>The popularity and success of the Baroque style was encouraged by the Roman Catholic Church </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Decided at the time of the Council of Trent that the arts should communicate religious themes in direct and emotional involvement </li></ul><ul><li>The aristocracy ( the people of highest social class who often have special title) also saw the dramatic style of Baroque architecture and art as a means of impressing visitors and expressing triumphant power and control. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Some traits and aspects of Baroque paintings that differentiate this style from others are the abundant amount of details, often bright polychromy, less realistic faces of subjects, and an overall sense of awe (feeling of respect and either fear or admiration) , which was one of the goals in Baroque art. </li></ul>
