Definition of rococo

Definition of Rococo

  • Rococo, also referred to as "Late Baroque", 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.

  • Rococodeveloped in the early part of the 18th century in Paris, France as a reaction against the grandeur, symmetry and strict regulations of the Baroque, especially that of the Palace of Versailles.

  • Rococo was the dominant style during the first half of the century, although it enjoyed manifestations throughout Europe.

  • “Rococo" probably derived from a combination of the first two syllables of the French wordsrocaille (a form of rockwork found in architectural ornament and decorative arts) andcoquillage (a shell motif that accompanied therocaille )
