Francesco Mochi (1580-1654)
First Baroque sculptor; on a par with Caravaggio and Carracci.
In baroque sculpture, groups of figures assumed new importance and there was a dynamic movement and energy of human forms—they spiraled around an empty central vortex, or reached outwards into the surrounding space. For the first time, baroque sculpture often had multiple ideal viewing angles. The characteristic baroque sculpture added extra-sculptural elements, for example, concealed lighting, or water fountains. Aleijadinho in Brazil was also one of the great names of baroque sculpture, and his master work is the set of statues of the Santuário de Bom Jesus de Matosinhos in Congonhas. The soapstone sculptures of old testament prophets around the terrace are considered amongst his finest work.
Another example of baroque architecture is the Cathedral of Morelia, Michoacán in Mexico. Built in the seventeenth century by Vincenzo Barrochio, it is one of the many baroque cathedrals in Mexico. Baroque churches are also seen in the Philippines, which were built during the Spanish period.
