040: Brain Drain

9 02 2010

For the past three days I’ve been struggling with coming up with a proper detailed outline of Baroque Art and Architecture for my history class. Although I have lots of resources in the form of books, old notes, and the wonderful Internets, it’s one of the periods of Western history that I never really understood. Sure, it’s over-the-top ornamented, and it’s time period is generally 17th to mid-18th century, but what about regional differences? How do I differentiate it from Renaissance and Rococo, which precede and succeed Baroque, respectively. Sometimes there is clear delineation in the styles, but often there is none.

My brain is squeezed dry and put in a blender.
