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. The Baroque art of the 17th century was characterised 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, starting in France, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomised by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced in-depth 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, architects such as Christopher Wren and many other major figures in both the decorative and the fine arts.
