ROCOCO, Hardback Book

ROCOCO Hardback

Part of the BASIC ART series

Description

In the Parisian art world, Rococo was characterized by pastoral scenes by Watteau, Boucher and Fragonard, including the famous The Swing, a vision of movement, greenery, and billowing petticoats.

In Venice, the style informed the magnificent cityscapes and veduta of Canaletto and Guardi, along with Tiepolo's brilliantly illuminated ceiling frescos, while in Southern Germany and Austria, luminous celestial images adorned church ceilings.

Through its hallmarks and its regional variants, this book introduces all the intricacy, playfulness, and opulence of the Rococo with page after page of rich illustration and insightful commentary.
