The Rococo Movement

The Rococo Movement

The Rococo movement began in France and was defined by bright, vivid colors and lavish decoration. It can be seen in places like the Palace of Versailles and 18th century German cathedrals. Rococo artists focused on detail and elaborateness.



Neoclassicism was inspired by the traditional art and philosophy of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Neoclassical artists focused primarily on order, reason, and logic in their works. Neoclassicism is about keeping themes simple and restrained.



Romanticism strongly contrasted with the ideals of Neoclassicism, even though many Romantic artists were trained by Neoclassical artists. Romanticism focused on emotion and imagination, especially in the form of nature’s power. Subjectivity and strong emotional reactions were hallmarks of Romantic art.
