Large and Impressive Antique Italian Carved Frame in the Baroque Style

About

This beautiful antique frame is notable for its extremely fine hand-carved Baroque style detailing. Floral garlands and scrolling flowers imagery are common to Baroque design, as is the use of heavy textiles such as velvet and damask. Originating in 17th century Italy, the Baroque style is characterized by its dramatic exuberance and luxurious decadence. The style was to greatly influence furniture design across Europe throughout the 17th century, remaining popular until the early 18th century. It is considered to be an artistic style that emphasized grandeur, using exaggerated motion and clear detailing to produce scenes of tension and dramatic recognition. The popularity and success of the Baroque style was largely due to the Catholic church, especially in Rome, who encouraged the visual and decorative arts to communicate religious themes that highlighted the emotional involvement of humanity. The European aristocracy also perpetuated the success of the Baroque style, as they regarded the art and architecture that was created as a means to impress visitors, and project an image of power and wealth.
