Although I am a huge admirer of Realism, when I was looking at the different art pieces from the Rococo period, this painting immediately caught my eye! It does not depict a famous story from the history or from mythology, for instance, we cannot find a profound meaning in it, like in many of the Realistic paintings, but I really can stand and watch at it all day long!Dancing scene with palace interior was painted by the Rococo artist Johann Georg Platzer. He was from Austria and he was most famous with his mythological and historical paintings. Even if we are not familiar with the period from which this painting dated, we immediately can recognize the most important features of a Rococo piece of art- playful, marry paintings, depicting young and rich couples in love, we have sensuality, elegance, joyfulness. Even the title gives us a little hint- "dancing scene".I love the pastel colors Platzer had used, which are typical for the Rococo period. We see people dancing, eating, drinking, laughing.An interesting thing that I have noticed while I was zooming in and scrutinizing the masterpiece ( because I really thing that every painting hides something unique in it) is the paintings in the background. If we think of the different styles in the Rococo art and these paintings, we can see that they perfectly depicts every different aspect ( if I can call it that way) , every different subject of matter that derives from this period - we can see portraiture, we can see paintings from everyday life ( like Chardin's scenes) down, in the right corner of the wall, the paintings with the carrots and the fruits. There is a painting, illustrating a scene from the court( depicting upper class,wealthy people), and in the middle, the biggest of all paintings with this man standing in the center and the other around him pouring him wine may show either a mythological story or just a playful story. If we look at the upper part of the wall - we see a landscape painting also.I like the frivolity of the painting, the colors, I very much admire also the way in which the drapery of the dancers had been painted.The ornaments in the architecture in the painting also show us from which period is the paintings- we all know that one of the most characteristic features of Rococo is decoration.
