Art history ruminations from a waterfowl. Honk honk.

This altarpiece from the Monastery Church at Rohr represents the baroque legacy left by 17th century sculptors such as Bernini. Although the baroque style was replaced by neoclassicism as the new avant-garde art in the 18th century, the Catholic Church continued to make use of it’s emotional impact to inspire piety in breath-taking commissions such as this.
