Rococo by Victoria Charles,Klaus Carl Book Resume:
Deriving from the French word rocaille, in reference to the curved forms of shellfish, and the Italian barocco, the French created the term ‘Rococo’. Appearing at the beginning of the 18th century, it rapidly spread to the whole of Europe. Extravagant and light, Rococo responded perfectly to the spontaneity of the aristocracy of the time. In many aspects, this art was linked to its predecessor, Baroque, and it is thus also referred to as late Baroque style. While artists such as Tiepolo, Boucher and Reynolds carried the style to its apogee, the movement was often condemned for its superficiality. In the second half of the 18th century, Rococo began its decline. At the end of the century, facing the advent of Neoclassicism, it was plunged into obscurity. It had to wait nearly a century before art historians could restore it to the radiance of its golden age, which is rediscovered in this work by Klaus H. Carl and Victoria Charles.
Baroque & Rococo by Marco Bussagli,Mattia Reiche Book Resume:
An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of this magnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. Baroque art was characterized by unbridled emotion, intricate decorative flourishes, and a dramatic use of light, reaching its summit in works such as Bernini’s magnificent altarpiece, The Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Over time, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomized by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced exploration of both movements guides the reader through more than a century of art history--exploring the lives and works of sculptors such as Bernini, painters such as Watteau, Boucher, Rubens, and Hogarth, and architects such as Christopher Wren.

The Spiritual Rococo by Professor Gauvin Alexander Bailey Book Resume:
Exploring for the very first time the global reach and spiritual dimension of Rococo décor, particularly in France, Central Europe, Portugal, Brazil, and Spanish South America, this study investigates the socio-religious motives for the importation of this style into an ecclesiastical setting and its commonalities with Enlightenment values, overturning the cliché of Rococo as a frivolous style and acknowledging its essential modernity.
Rococo Fiction in France, 1600-1715 by Allison Stedman Book Resume:
Author Allison Stedman makes a case for the rococo as a seventeenth-century literary phenomenon that provided an ideological counterpoint to the rise of French political absolutism. Stedman traces the rococo s evolution and the study unearths the rococo s counter-vision for the origins of the French Enlightenment."
Rococo and Other Worlds by Afzal Ahmed Syed Book Resume:
Afzal Ahmed Syed holds a unique place among contemporary poets of the Urdu language, as an acknowledged master of both the classical and modern Urdu poetic forms. The poems in Rococo and Other Worlds explore the mythology and historical realities of South Asia and the Middle East; their bold imagery creates narratives of voluptuous perfection, which remain inseparable from the political realities that Syed witnessed as a young observer of the violent separation of East Pakistan and emergence of Bangladesh in 1971 and of the Lebanese civil war in 1976. Musharraf Ali Farooqi’s sensitive translations bring this extraordinary work to English readers for the first time.
