The Baroque style is one associated with grand exuberance, as the Catholic Church responded to the Protestant reformation. Baroque art thus seeks to express religious ideas in a clear, yet visually arresting style that seeks to fully engage those who experience it. Reflecting its status as a European movement Dutch painting reached stunning highs in the period, notably in the work of masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens. When those great works are considered alongside Bernini's sculpture, Borromini's architecture and Caravaggio's painting, it's clear that the Baroque period represents one of the most glorious periods of artistic expression.
