BAROQUE by Bob Kessel

Bob Kessel has created a new art series called “GOING FOR BAROQUE”.

These pictures are based on paintings from the Baroque era. Baroque is the art movement of the Counter- Reformation in the 17th century. Although some features appear in Dutch art, the Baroque style was limited mainly to Catholic countries. A relevant part of works was made on religious themes, since the Church was the main customer.

The word BAROQUE derives probably from the ancient Portuguese noun “barroco” which is a pearl that is not round but of unpredictable and elaborate shape. Hence, in informal usage, the word baroque can simply mean that something is “elaborate”, with many details, without reference to the Baroque styles of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
In modern usage, the term Baroque may still be used, usually pejoratively, to describe works of art, craft, or design that are thought to have excessive ornamentation or complexity.
