Thanks in advance!


Rococo was an art and architecture style that traced its origin to France. It started during the late Baroque period, around the 18th century. The artistic movement affected all facets of arts like painting, literature, music, interior design, and many others. Rococo was derived from a French word ‘rocaille’, or stone, and ‘conquilles,’ or shell. The name was derived from overreliance on stones and shells as main decorative motifs. Although the Rococo style was short lived, it had a great impact across Europe, and its artistic features are evident today.
