The Baroque Era (From the Mid-16th to the Mid-18th Century). Collisions of Contrasts

Keywords: the global artistic process, the chief historical periods, the Baroque era.


The essence of the cycle of essays published
by the journal is that with a maximal
compactness of presentation it provides
a summary of the chief phenomena of world
artistic culture, covered in general both
from the point of view of the overall historical
process and in relation to various types
of artistic creativity (literature, the visual arts,
architecture, music, theater and cinema).
At the same time, the customary categorization
according to national schools and the division
into the separate arts with the genre
specification inherent in each of them
is overcome, which meets the positive
tendencies of globalization and provides
a holistic view of artistic phenomena.
