Baroque is a trend of European art, which appeared at the end of the XVI century and had been dominant until the middle of the XVIII century. Baroque painting is majestic and solemn, it expresses the fullness of life and its joy. It has such distinctive features as monumental wealth of scenery and dynamism. The themes are often religious or mythological.
Baroque era generates a huge amount of time for the sake of entertainment: walking in the park instead of pilgrimage, horseback riding and card games instead of jousting, the theater and masquerade instead of mysteries. We can also point out that that is the time when swings and fireworks first appear. Portraits and landscapes took place of icons and spiritual music slowly transformed intol into more pleasant and melodic one.
