Alphabetical Index of the Great Masters of Rococo

Rococo art is a style that emerged in Paris in the early 18th century and soon spread throughout France and other countries such as Germany and Austria. The term "rococo" was first used by Jean Mondon to describe the style used in architecture, interior design, and decorative arts in one of his book. Rococo art is characterized by its focus on the decorative arts such as furniture, textiles, ceramics, as well as painting and sculpture. It is marked by an emphasis on grace, delicacy, and the playful use of color with a profusion of ornamentation, curves, and asymmetrical shapes.

Rococo art is seen as a reaction against the strict formalism of the Baroque period that preceded it, and as a celebration of the pleasures and indulgences of aristocratic life. Rococo artists often collaborated with artisans and craftsmen to create elaborate and luxurious objects for the wealthy elite. Some of the most famous Rococo artists include Antoine Watteau, François Boucher, and Jean-Honoré Fragonard, each known for their unique styles. Overall, Rococo art is characterized by its lightness, elegance, and decorative charm, and is often associated with the reign of Louis XV and the aristocratic culture of the time.
