During the Baroque painting era, Europe is plunged into continuous wars, the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation, which will not end until the independence of Holland, and the consolidation of monarchical absolutism, especially in the centre of the continent. Art will be the propaganda vehicle of both the Church of the Counter-Reformation, and of the absolutist states or of the Protestant bourgeoisie. It is a seductive art that appeals to the imagination, the sensuality and the dynamism, for which it uses of the compositional theatricality is depicted.
