Course Description: From 1600 - 1700 the European powers vied for control of trade and ideology. This course will focus on how the art of this age reflects many of the events of their time. This is the century when the Counter Reformation gave rise to fantastic works in Italy by Bernini and Caravaggio. At the same time more humble paintings were produced in the North by artists like Vermeer and Rembrandt. It's an age of contrast and drama.
