We discussed the differences in Catholic and Protestant art of the 1500s and 1600s today, especially the themes of virtue and their portrayal of Christ. For more in-depth information, I strongly suggest you guys read this analysis from Visual Arts Cork regarding the differences in style.

Google Culture also has a nice, if brief, collection of paintings that are indicative of both styles.

And, of course, here is Tom Richey’s video on the Counter Reformation that we viewed in class.
