Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The case study gives an overview of the most important artists and movements in Roman Baroque painting from Caravaggio, the Carracci and their circle to Pietro da Cortona, Giovanni Battista Gaulli and Carlo Maratti. In the 17th century, Rome was a cosmopolitan center of art and politics. Artists, art connoisseurs and patrons from all over Europe came to the Eternal City and made a significant contribution to making the baroque a universal style in art history.
Decorations in churches, chapels and palaces, but also single altarpieces and easel paintings will be taken into consideration. Questions of style and iconography play just as important a role as the system of early modern art patronage.
The participants should get basic knowledge of the stylistic development, the most important artists, the great painting tasks as well as the actors and practices of the Roman art business.
