"Every age projects its own image into its arts." The Rococo period was the end result of the Baroque and was similar to the Baroque but more over the top and intense. The Rococo period featured a more light and airy style of painting and emphasized the use of pastel colors. Rococo paintings were also extremely focused on the lives of the nobility and their activities. The Rococo artists did a great job reflecting on the events and characteristics of their time, and also did a good job creating their own style separate than that of the Baroque. The two artists featured in this gallery are Thomas Gainsborough and Jean-Honoré Fragonard.
