Rococo Oil Paintings, Rococo Oil Painting Reproductions

The Rococo style in painting Fine Art emerged in France in the early 18th century as a continuation of the Baroque. The 1730s represented the height of Rococo development in France. The style had spread beyond architecture and furniture to oil painting and sculpture, exemplified by the works of Antoine Watteau and Francois Boucher. Rococo oil paintings still maintained the Baroque taste for complex forms and intricate patterns. By this point, it had begun to integrate a variety of diverse characteristics, including a taste for Oriental designs and asymmetric compositions. By 1780, Rococo style in painting had passed out of fashion in France, replaced by the order and seriousness of the paintings of Neoclassical artists like Jacques Louis David. It remained popular in the provinces and in Italy, until the second phase of neoclassicism, "Empire style," arrived with Napoleonic governments and swept Rococo away.
