In Spain, the Baroque style flourished especially in 1625 through 1660. Baroque comes from the Spanish word barroco which means an imperfect pearl; elaborate with lots of details. Spain developed its own distinctive style and emphasis. Its style was realistic and the emphasis was placed on court portraits seeing as how the Monarchs were the patrons. Spanish Baroque art has a quality of dignity. Two Spanish artists included Diego Velazquez and Francisco de Zurbaran.
