Rebecca Albiani
July 16-19, 9:30 am-noon

This course examines the formation of Baroque art in four cities in the age of absolute monarchy. In Prague, the eccentric Rudolf II attained new levels of extravagance as patron of the arts and sciences. Pope Paul V and his nephew Scipione Borghese spent lavishly on building in early-seventeenth-century Rome, while Caravaggio, Carracci, and Bernini established the Baroque style. Phillip IV amassed an enormous art collection in Madrid; Velazquez was his court painter. And Louis XIV oversaw significant improvements to Paris, enlarging the Louvre and building the Hotel des Invalides. Learn how all these cities were interconnected and how each was unique.
