From Baroque Times to Modern Time
A lecture discussing the similarities between the Baroque Period and Modern Times
The Baroque period (1600-1750) was a time of social upheaval, dramatically increasing world trade, and rapidly growing wealth that gave rise to new forms of artistic expression. All facets of art, including architecture, fashion, and jewelry were affected. In her delightful illustrated talk Ms. Crevoshay takes us through these developments with special emphasis on jewelry and draws parallels with our own time.
