Rococo

The Rococo movement emerged in France in the late 17th and early 18th century. The word is a derivative of the French term rocaille, which means “rock and shell garden ornamentation”. The Rococo movement addressed the most important controversy of the time – colour versus drawing – and combined the two to create beautiful pieces. Artists of this period focused more on attention to detail, ornamentation and use of bright colours. In France Boucher and in Italy Tiepolo and Sebastiano Ricci and Corrado Giaquinto, all artists handled by The Matthiesen Gallery, are the leading proponents of the style.
