The visual language of the baroque period is typified by an exuberant use of curves and flourishes, and bright and contrasting colors. The result is an exhilarating ornamental style of great beauty. This book is also part of the series that covers the decorative styles prevalent in Europe since the beginning of the western calendar. The series focuses on two dimensional designs. The dominant style of the 17th and half of the 18th century was the Baroque. The applied arts of this period were typified by the use of bold, sometimes overstated forms, including exaggerated curves and curls.
