Tell Me About… Baroque Art

Did you know that the terms Baroque and Impressionism were initially used to criticise these artistic styles? And what is Mannerism or Rococo? Host and NGV curator Laurie Benson journeys through art history to introduce the context and characteristics of some of the defining and exciting movements in this new series, starting with the Baroque (1600–1750).
