Baroque Quotations

Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over.
Ernest Hemingway

Jacqueline Carey

It's art that pushes against psychological and social expectations, that tries to transform decay into something generative, that is replicative in a baroque way, that isn't about progress, and wants to - as Walt Whitman put it - 'contain multitudes.'
Jerry Saltz

Rufus Wainwright

Mario Batali
