Overview

Baroque Baroque spotlights Baroque style in all of its twentieth-century manifestations: fashion, film, photography, design, and interior decoration. It traces the origins of the Baroque 'revival' that evolved as a rebellion against the sterilities of Modernism, showing how Baroque thrives today as a colorful, opulent alternative to the minimalist aesthetic. It charts the achievements of figures as diverse as the Sitwells, Cecil Beaton, Angus McBean, Coco Chanel, and Fellini, including many other creative forces from the past 100 years. It explores all facets of contemporary Baroque culture, from the extravagances of haute couture to the theatrical affectation of Hollywood, to the fantastical whimsies of architecture and design.
