Beginning around the year 1600, the demands for new art resulted in what is now known as the Baroque.  The appeal of Baroque style turned consciously from the witty, intellectual qualities of 16th century Mannerist art to a visceral appeal aimed at the senses.  Though Baroque was superseded in many centers by the Rococo style, beginning in France in the late 1720s, especially for interiors, paintings and the decorative arts, Baroque architecture remained a viable style until the advent of Neoclassicism in the later 18th century.  Peter Paul Rubens and Caravaggio were Baroque painters.  Michelangelo was a Baroque sculptor. In music, Bach and Handel were quintessential Baroque composers.  The word baroque is a French translation of the Portuguese word Barroco, meaning an irregular pearl.  Now "baroque" is commonly used to describe any artistic style that could be extremely elaborate, ornamented or adorned.
