One of the greatest periods of art history, the Baroque Era began in Europe in the early 1600s. Painting is characterized by drama, rich, deep color, and intense light and dark shadows. Among the greatest painters are Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Rubens, Velazquez, Poussin, and Vermeer. Baroque style was encouraged by the Catholic Church, the largest patron of the arts at the time.   continue on wikipedia ╗
