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 )

  • The style was characterized by a free, graceful movement, a playful use of line and delicate colours.
  • Jean-Antoine Watteau (French, 1684-1721) is often referred to as the greatest of the Rococo painters, and his picture of the Embarkation for Cythera demonstrates the elegance of this style.
  • The Rococo is sometimes considered a final phase of the Baroque period.
