Author: Tavaron da Quirm - Arts Editor - U1314679

The next part of the series, just in time after the Renaissance is done. I'm afriad it'S again a few hundred words longer than I'd have liked it to be.

It was difficult to draw a line between art and architechture in the BAroque, but I did my best. smiley - laugh

Excellent smiley - ok Thank you very much - very interesting smiley - biggrin

"It was the last large all-encompasing arts style in Europe" - I'm not sure I understand what that means.

"The emotions boiling up inside people are visualized through the many folds of their clothes." - superb!

"copying popular in large quantities." - popular paintings?

smiley - ok

Sorry for the length of this list. smiley - hug

>>regeneration of the Catholic Church. <<

I don't think 'regeneration' is quite the right word. Resurgence? (What is it in German?)

>>to lead believers in the right way.<<

That sounds like taking sides. smiley - rofl Could you say 'to provide moral inspiration'?

>>Baroque arts has<<

'Baroque art has', or 'the baroque arts have'. Choose singular or plural.

smiley - biro I love the opera part. smiley - biggrin Could you please put the scientists in a separate paragraph?

>>They were naturalistic but not cool.<<

The word 'cool' isn't doing it for me here. Can you think of another word? What is missing from this naturalism?

>>the emergence of more arts critiques and writings on this matter.<<

Did you mean 'an increase in critical writing about the arts'?

>>a new ware.<<

Not in English. How about, 'The arts became a matter of interest and public discussion, something to write about. They also provided new goods that could be bought, sold, or traded.'


I'd go ahead and say something like 'Gesamtkunstwerk, or 'total work of art.' I would do this even though 'Gesamtkunstwerk' is a loan word in English - because lots of people don't know what it means. smiley - winkeye

>>Ceiling paintings were also a very suitable thing for churches, of course. <<

Why 'of course'? I'd leave it out.

>>The study of antique arts<<

'The study of the arts of antiquity'. [These days, 'antique' as an adjective is going to make people think of second-hand shops. My coffee table is antique. It is not Roman.]

I love the last sentence. smiley - rofl
