Art of the Catholic Reformation (1560-1700)
All over the world from, San Diego
Timken Museum of Art presents a virtual lecture: The term 'Catholic Counter-Reformation Art' describes the more stringent, doctrinal style of Christian art developed during the period c.1560-1700, in response to Martin Luther's revolt against Rome (1517) and the Protestant Reformation. This stricter style of Catholic Biblical art was designed to highlight the theological differences between Catholicism and Protestantism, by focusing on the mysteries of the faith, as well as the roles of the Virgin Mary and the Saints."
