The term Baroque is applied to the late Renaissance period (1600-1750). Considered both a style and a period, the paintings reflect dramatic light and shade, turbulent composition and an exaggerated emotional expression. Some of the leading artists of the Baroque style include Caravaggio, Annibale Carracci and Gianlorenzo Bernini.
