It is known to most people who are history fanatics that the reign of French King Louis XIV was characterized by the Baroque style. Examples are The Versailles Palace and the Louvre was decorated in a strong, dramatic and exuberant style echoing the King’s strong leadership in a period of war and colonial empire buildings. This style started around 1600 in Italy and spread from there to most of Europe.
Basically, the classical Baroque style was grand and impressive, a symbol of power. This style has reached its highest zenith when it was executed on a grand scale, especially in architecture and sculpture. The Baroque is a style that used exaggerated motion, gestures and expressions to produce drama, tension, exuberance and grandeur in sculpture, painting, literature, dance and music. But, too much for history, take a look at our photos, and admire the beauty we have in store for you.
