In Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast, Cogsworth says: "If it's not Baroque, don't fix it." 

Though it is a wise quote, it is hard to tell why he said it. 

This is why he said it: 

There is a Baroque Vermeer painting in Beast's castle. 

Here is the scene in which the painting appears: 

Mrs. Potts talks to Cogsworth and Lumiere

The painting is to the right of Cogsworth. 

The painting is called Girl With A Pearl Earring and it is by Baroque Vermeer. 

Girl With A Pearl Earring

  By Baroque Vermeer
