François Boucher, Le Déjeuner, (1739, Louvre), shows a rocaille interior of a French bourgeois family in the 18th century. The porcelain statuette and vase add a touch of chinoiserie.

 

 Rococo   A light, playful and decorative style that emerged in France around 1700 and was disseminated throughout Europe in the eighteenth century. The term comes from the French word rocaille, meaning the fancy shell- and rockwork used to decorate fountains and grottoes. Predominantly a style of interior decoration, the Rococo is typified by charm, elegance and playfulness and a palette usually consisting of pastel colours. Its subject matter frequently dealt with the leisurely pastimes of the aristocracy and risque’ love themes.   Rococo Artists :Amigoni, Boucher, Fragonard, Tiepolo, Watteau
