Barokarsky would mean something only in the context. For example, if
somebody is interested in baroque period than he/she is called "barokar"

about things being both "barokarsky" AND "neo-baroque", or the artist
starting out as barokarsky but also learning the neo-baroque style.
Occasionally, this author writes things that don't make a lot of sense. For
example, I've run into a "jeho" or two that could refer to either one of two
