SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

baroque (adj) (of architecture, music, art, etc.) highly decorated style of the seventeenth century; highly ornate and complicated with intricate designs.

A highly ornate style of architecture, elaborately decorated, and with intricate designs, is baroque. Baroque music is music that is complicated in composition and rather difficult to master. The same applies to baroque painting, that is painting which is highly decorative with intricate curves and intertwining lines and floral patterns.

  • The plain and simple style of modern architecture contrasts strongly with the decorative curves, domes, and arches laced with designs of flowers and creepers of the baroque style of architecture of the earlier centuries.
  • Those who enjoy pop music can never relish the highly complicated turning pattern of baroque music.
