art history meme | two of four art movements | rococo
The Rococo painters used delicate colours and curving forms, decorating their canvases with cherubs and myths of love. Portraiture was also popular among them. Some works show a sort of naughtiness or impurity in the behaviour of their subjects, showing the historical trend of departing away from the Baroque’s church/state orientation. Landscapes were pastoral and often depicted the leisurely outings of aristocratic couples.
