Baroque is a term assigned to a European artistic expression style which spanned from the late 16th century to the late 18th century. Today it remains a popular era in art, literature, architecture, and music. The Roman Catholic Church was one of the largest supporters of Baroque art, as it served to oppose the relative minimalism and somberness of Protestant art of the time. As is typical, Baroque art was a reflection of the ongoing religious and other cultural changes that were occurring in Europe during this period. Although it embraces a variety of art styles Baroque is mainly characterized by grandeur, realism, and emotional drama.

From those differences that are between both sculptures and there periods we can determine that Bernini’s David is more expressive than Michelangelo’s
The Renaissance was a period in European history set apart by a social blossoming. The Renaissance is characterized as the restoration or resurrection of expressions of the human experience. The home of the Renaissance was Italy, with its situation of noticeable quality on the Mediterranean Ocean. Italy was the business capital amongst Europe and Eurasia, amid this day and age, from fourteenth and sixteenth hundreds of years. Painters, stone workers, and designers displayed a comparative feeling of enterprise and the want for more noteworthy information and new arrangements.
Mannerism portrays the artists’ efforts to show their efforts in creating the art, whereas the early to late Renaissance artists worked to make their art appear as natural as possible with light and shadows, contrapposto and foreshortening. Mannerist painters, in essence, displayed their “construction”, or layout for viewers to see. The mannerist’s paintings look imbalanced and very complex—visually and ideally. Themes are twisted into unusual forms and shapes, so it seems that mannerist art rebels against the gentle and balanced ambience the Renaissance art depicted. One example of mannerist art is Bronzino’s Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time, ca. 1546.

They were seen as nothing more than “journeymen”, who got paid. Michelangelo turned around the world's view of artists through his extraordinary works of art.

Michelangelo Buonarroti was born on March 6th 1475, in Caprese, Italy where his father Lodovico was a government agent at the time but originally worked in Florence as a banker.
“The Renaissance of the fifteenth century was, in many things, great rather by what it designed then by what it achieved.” - Walter Pater.

Therefore, the origin and the other unexplained modifications suggest that there were other factors that changed Baroque
The goal of Baroque art is to portray god touching the lives of ordinary people - to show they too have worth. The painting by Caravaggio, The Madonna of Loreto, illustrates this concept perfectly. Madonna is portrayed as an ordinary person through making her look like a tired mother adorned in peasant clothes and her living conditions also reflect like she comes from a humbling background. The two people in the painting who come to worship her are also very obviously ordinary people and yet they are still able to have a relationship with

Although many scholars suggest that the Baroque era was a continuation of the Renaissance, others debate otherwise. The point is, that this time was the point of a pushback from the Catholic Church in response to Protestant Reformation (The Baroque: From Revolution in the Church to Revolutions in US & France to the Industrial Revolution, n.d.). Regardless of this pushback from the Church, thoughts and ideas were more freely expressed and thus so was art. One of the focal points of this period was the study of natural sciences that included research in geography and astronomy, and also brought about the microscope, telescope, thermometer, etc... ("The Scientific Revolution and the Baroque", n.d.). Astronomy had taken a more dominant position among the sciences.
