17th century Artists | Sitemap

The 17th century was the century that lasted from January 1, 1601, to December 31, 1700, in the Gregorian calendar.
It falls into the Early Modern period of Europe and in that continent (whose impact on the world was increasing) was characterized by the Baroque🎨 cultural movement, the latter part of the Spanish Golden Age, the Dutch Golden Age, the French Grand Siècle [fr] dominated by Louis XIV, the Scientific Revolution, and according to some historians, the General Crisis.
The greatest military conflicts were the Thirty Years' War, the Great Turkish War, and the Dutch-Portuguese War.
It was during this period also that European colonization of the Americas began in earnest, including the exploitation of the silver deposits, which resulted in bouts of inflation as wealth was drawn into Europe.




In the Islamic world, the Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal empires grew in strength.
Especially in the Indian subcontinent, Mughal architecture, culture and art reached its zenith, while the empire itself is believed to have had the world's largest economy, bigger than the entirety of Western Europe and worth 25% of global GDP.


In Japan, Tokugawa Ieyasu established the Tokugawa shogunate at the beginning of the century, beginning the Edo period; the isolationist Sakoku policy began in the 1630s and lasted until the 19th century.
In China, the collapsing Ming dynasty was challenged by a series of conquests led by the Manchu warlord Nurhaci, which were consolidated by his son Hong Taiji and finally consummated by his grandson, the Shunzi Emperor, founder of the Qing dynasty.
From the middle decades of the 17th century, European politics were increasingly dominated by the Kingdom of France of Louis XIV, where royal power was solidified domestically in the civil war of the Fronde.


The semi-feudal territorial French nobility was weakened and subjugated to the power of an absolute monarchy through the reinvention of the Palace of Versailles from a hunting lodge to a gilded prison, in which a greatly expanded royal court could be more easily kept under surveillance.
With domestic peace assured, Louis XIV caused the borders of France to be expanded.
 It was during this century that English monarch became a symbolic figurehead and Parliament was the dominant force in government – a contrast to most of Europe, in particular France.
By the end of the century, Europeans and Indians were aware of logarithms, electricity, the telescope and microscope, calculus, universal gravitation, Newton's Laws of Motion, air pressure and calculating machines due to the work of the first scientists of the Scientific Revolution, including Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, René Descartes, Pierre Fermat, Blaise Pascal, Robert Boyle, Christiaan Huygens, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, Robert Hooke, Isaac Newton, and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. It was also a period of development of culture in general (especially theater, music, visual arts and philosophy). | © Wikipedia

Il 17 ° secolo fu il secolo che durò dal 1 gennaio 1601-31 dicembre 1700, nel calendario gregoriano.
 Cade nell'età moderna dell'Europa caratterizzata dal movimento culturale barocco, l'ultima parte dell'età dell'oro spagnola, l'età dell'oro olandese, il Grand Siècle francese dominato da Luigi XIV, la rivoluzione scientifica, e secondo alcuni storici, la crisi generale.
 I più grandi conflitti militari furono la Guerra dei Trent'anni, la Grande Guerra Turca e la Guerra Olandese-Portoghese.
Fu durante questo periodo anche che la colonizzazione europea delle Americhe iniziò sul serio, compreso lo sfruttamento dei giacimenti d'argento, che portò a periodi di inflazione mentre la ricchezza veniva attratta in Europa.
 Nel mondo islamico, gli imperi ottomano, safavide e moghul si sono rafforzati. Soprattutto nel subcontinente indiano, l'architettura, la cultura e l'arte di Mughal raggiunsero il loro apice, mentre si crede che l'impero abbia avuto la più grande economia del mondo, più grande di tutta l'Europa occidentale e vale il 25% del PIL mondiale. 
 In Giappone, Tokugawa Ieyasu fondò lo shogunato Tokugawa all'inizio del secolo, iniziando il periodo Edo; la politica isolazionista di Sakoku iniziò negli anni Trenta del secolo scorso e durò fino al XIX secolo.
 In Cina, la dinastia Ming è stata sfidata da una serie di conquiste condotte dal nobile della guerra Manchu Nurhaci, consolidate dal figlio Hong Taiji e infine consumate da suo nipote, l'imperatore Shunzi, fondatore della dinastia Qing.
 A partire dai decenni centrali del XVII secolo, la politica europea fu sempre più dominata dal Regno di Francia di Luigi XIV, dove il potere reale fu solidificato a livello nazionale nella guerra civile della Fronda.
La nobiltà francese territoriale semi-feudale fu indebolita e soggiogata al potere di una monarchia assoluta attraverso la reinvenzione della Reggia di Versailles da una casetta di caccia ad una prigione dorata, in cui una corte reale molto ampliata poteva essere più facilmente tenuta sotto sorveglianza. Con la pace domestica assicurata, Luigi XIV fece espandere i confini della Francia.
 Fu durante questo secolo che il monarca inglese divenne un prestanome simbolico e il Parlamento fu la forza dominante nel governo - un contrasto con la maggior parte dell'Europa, in particolare la Francia.
Alla fine del secolo, europei ed indiani erano a conoscenza dei logaritmi, dell'elettricità, del telescopio e del microscopio, del calcolo, della gravitazione universale, delle leggi del moto di Newton, della pressione dell'aria e delle macchine calcolatrici a causa del lavoro dei primi scienziati della rivoluzione scientifica, tra cui Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, René Descartes, Pierre Fermat, Blaise Pascal, Robert Boyle, Christiaan Huygens, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, Robert Hooke, Isaac Newton e Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Fu anche un periodo di sviluppo della cultura in generale (in particolare teatro, musica, arti visive e filosofia).
