Baroque…

I never liked baroque. Neither in art nor in architecture. And suddenly some 16 years ago I had to change my mind. A guide has no right to express own opinion, said my teacher at the guides’ training. A guide is to objectively present objects.

Ok….

But how on earth could I be objective if I truly disliked baroque.

Soon the remedy came. I passed state exams for guiding in Poland’s Warmia-Mazury Region (former East Prussia). Besides splendid medieval castles and exceptional medieval churches, there also is a lot of… baroque there. So whether I liked it or not, I had to became at least neutral in my perception of this style.

Only after I started to study this over the top ornamented style, I found how many beautiful (!) variations of it we have in Poland.

Below are a few photos of the Częstochowa church (famous for being the Black Madonna Shrine).

Next photos are soon to come 😊

  1. Good to receive another missive from you. Even though you don’t like Baroque (not even the music which is some of the best ever written??), I still consider you fondly. Wishing you much goodness and happiness.
