The history of European art styles actually begins with the “Le grand style” of Louis XIV.
Together with the realization of the concept of “style”, the aesthetic quality was added to some of its elements, and the taste became somewhat refined.
It was attributable to the French and received an excellent, truly classic development in the XVIII century, in the era of the Rococo, although, evolved in the XVII century, at the court of Louis XIV.
Rococo is one of the most famous “royal styles”. It has no equals in the history. Femininity became the main criterion of beauty in the Rococo art.
The main decorative motif is a form of shell (rocaille), as well as the intertwined stems of plants associated with the theme of sea and the attributes of the god of the seas, Poseidon.
The trend towards a picturesque interior space trace back to the Baroque; however, it has reached its highest development in Rococo period.
The Baroque bright colors gave way to the pastel tones of white, pink, jonquil, olive, and gold blue. All ornaments are characterized by subtlety, ease and grace.
The Rococo style gives delight even to the most refined aesthetic taste.
