Rococo

Europe, 1715 to 1774

The Rococo style succeeded Baroque Art in Europe. It was centered in France, and is generally associated with the reign of King Louis XV (1715-1774). It is a light, elaborate and decorative style of art, particularly concerned with tiny details such as properly depicting the curve of a ribbon. Quintessentially Rococo artists include Watteau, Fragonard, François Boucher, and Tiepolo. Rococo was eventually replaced by Neoclassicism, which was the popular style of the American and French revolutions.
