the time period of Rococo

-

Rococo is an 18th-century artistic movement and style, which affected several aspects of the arts including painting, sculpture, architecture, interior design, decoration, literature, music and theatre, developed in the early part of the 18th century.

Unlike the more politically focused Baroque, the Rococo had more playful and often witty artistic themes. In the book The Rococo, it is written that there was no other culture which “has produced a wittier, more elegant, and teasing dialogue full of elusive and camouflaging language and gestures, refined feelings and subtle criticism”

The word Rococo is seen as a combination of the French rocaille, meaning stone, and coquilles, meaning shell, due to reliance on these objects as motifs of decoration. Rococo is now widely recognized as a major period in the development of European art.

Painters used delicate colors and curving forms, decorating their canvases with cherubs and myths of love. They show a sort of naughtiness or impurity in the behavior of their subjects, showing the historical trend of departing away from the Baroque’s church orientation.
