Summary "Baroque painting of the 17th century is notable for its overwhelming splendour and pathos. In the age of the plague, religious wars and the excesses of the nobility, art served the aims of the Counter-Reformation and Absolutism. The glory of this epoch shines through, between lust for life and the pain of death-- thanks to great masters such as van Dyck, Rubens, Velázquez, Rembrandt and Caravaggio"--Container.
