Exhibition: Baroque Period; Miniatures of the Baroque Period in Celle, Bomann-Museum

Published: September 03, 2018
Description

The baroque period is a little known epoch in miniature painting. One reason for this is that relatively few works from the period exist, as small-format portraits were the preserve of society’s upper classes. In contrast to their successors, the artists creating these baroque portraits primarily emphasised the rank, wealth and superiority of their sitters. They occasionally used symbols whose meanings are not immediately obvious to today’s observers. #book #art
