    Critics coined the pejorative term “baroque” (derived from the Portuguese word “barroco,” meaning a misshapen pearl) to describe the dominant style of art and architecture in 17th-century Europe.

     

    These writers were responding to the theatrical curvature of baroque façades as well as to the over-the-top ornament and lavish materials of the period’s interiors. In this four-session course, we will explore some of the major architectural monuments of baroque-era Rome, Paris, Versailles, London, and Vienna.

    Each week, the main lecture is followed by a 30-minute discussion session that allows students the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas with the instructor and classmates.
