ART

The 17th century (1600s) and 18th century (1700s) featured many changes in art. After the Renaissance, Mannerism led to The Baroque period, which dominated the entire 17th century, while the 18th century saw the emergence of the Rococo period. The Age of Enlightenment challenged everyone’s thinking, and this led to two more art movements: Neoclassicism and Romanticism.
