Rococo
Rococo was an 18th century style of French painting and decorative arts. Derived from the French world rocaille, Rococo refers to the shell-covered rockwork that was used to decorate artificial grottoes. The style was characterized by flowering vegetal forms and light coloring. Artists avoided the weighty historical and religious subject matter of the past, and concentrated on creating light-hearted and pleasurable compositions, leaving the viewer to focus on the beauty.
