Ending this weekend, don’t miss the final chance to experience this celebration of European work from two of its most celebrated movements. Beginning in Italy around 1600 the Baroque style, encouraged by the Catholic Church, developed throughout architecture, painting, sculpture and literature as the style spread quickly throughout Europe. Defined by it’s strong lighting, exaggerated motion and intense drama, examples including François Boucher’s St. Joseph’s dream and Alexandre Cabanel’s Paolo and Francesca can be seen on display. The Barbizon school movement developed in the 1800’s and marked a transition towards realism in art. See fine examples of both at Sogo Museum of Art’s exhibition.
