Time Capsule Paper

Verna Cathy Tobin

The Age of Baroque was between 1600 and 1750. “The term ‘baroque’ is associated with such features as ornateness, spatial grandeur, and theoretical flamboyance” (Fiero, 2011, p. 10). The Age of Baroque follows the Renaissance, which means ‘rebirth.’ Therefore, the Age of Baroque can be in comparison to the years of adolescence, where the events and cultural patterns are contradictory and full of emotional statement. This paper will highlight two examples of art, music, descriptions of architecture, philosophy, and literature of time as well as reflect how ...view middle of the document...

This also depicts Biblical characters, the Shepherds. There are three men and a woman in the painting that discover a tomb and read an inscription on the tomb. The painting stirs emotions that may not be intense initially but are more longlasting in that it makes the viewer contemplate how death can affect him or her.
Examples of Music
The second two examples of the Age of Baroque are in music of the time. Music of this age was reflective of the time because it too was one of discovery. The time was a time of expansion and a combination of old and new. Music was no different. The Church had a strong influence and wanted to banish any secular influences in music. At the same time there was an evolution of music into opera. The operas were also used to move individuals and evoke emotions, a central theme of the time. The first example was In ecclesiis by Giovanni Garieli (1555-1612). This piece of music was produced to be performed in St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice.

The first example is that of the Piazza. This was the space that was in front of St. Peter’s Basilica and was designed by Bernini (1598-1680). The major feature of the keyhole shaped space was the colonnade, which gave the feeling and characteristics of the time of grandeur and ornateness. The second example of architecture is the church San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane by Francesco Borromini (1599-1667). This was a small church with extraordinary decorative elements to bring out the Baroque characteristics. The elements also allows illusions to produce the emotions that were a focus of the time. This included Corinthian columns, life-sized angels as well as an oval dome with hidden windows to allow for the interior to be illuminated.
