17th Century Art

17th century art was characterized by Baroque painting styles. These works signaled the end of the Renaissance and led to a diverse and fascinating study of art that focused on new methods of composition and color theory.

Many historically famous images can be found in 17th century art. These works were developed by highly talented artists who viewed their art in a different way than the Renaissance artists. One of the largest differences was the change to Baroque-style painting techniques. These dramatic art prints defied Renaissance convention by depicting the subject matter at its highest point of tension, rather than just before. Another change came in the form of Orientalist art, which focused artists attention on other cultures, as seen in the historically famous print, 'Girl with a Pearl Earring, c. 1665' by Johannes Vermeer.

The focus of Baroque paintings was to create the most intensely dramatic images possible. One major way that the differing styles of the Renaissance can be explored by comparing Michelangelo's 'David' with Bernini's 'David'. Whereas Michelangelo chooses to depict David just before the fight with Goliath, Bernini shows him right as the rock is thrown, at the highest point of drama. 17th century art also saw a fondness for realistic, vibrant colors which highlighted the subject matter of these dramatic art prints.

Religious images also experienced a resurgence during the emergence of Baroque painting styles. Because people were portraying things in different ways, old ideas were reinvented during 17th century art. Works like 'Storm on the Sea of Galilee' by Rembrandt Van Rjin and 'Old Woman Praying' by Nicolaes Maes are two examples about how biblical stories, and the people who believed them, were reinvented during this time.
