The Rococo Style
The Rococo art style was very important in 18th century France and reached into every
microbe of their daily lives whether it be, graphic arts, furniture, architecture, interior
decorating, fashion, art. The rococo period corresponded roughly to the reign (1715-74)
of King Louis XV of France. Its exact origins are obscure, but it appears to have begun
with the work of the French designer Pierre Lepautre, who introduced arabesques and
curves into the interior architecture of the royal residence at Marly, and with the
paintings of Jean-Antoine Watteau, whose delicate, color-drenched canvases of lords
and ladies in idyllic surroundings broke with the heroic Louis XIV style. The term rococo
comes from the French rocaille, "rock-work," and hallmarks of the full-fledged style are
architectural decoration based on arabesques, shells, elaborate curves, and
asymmetry; iridescent pastel colors; and, in painting, light-hearted rather than weighty
subject matter.
