"Every age projects its own images into its art." During the Rococo art period (c.1700-1789). There were many important characteristics of the time period such as the use of pastels, lighter, airy colors. This period was less formal in comparison to the Baroque period and was typically on a smaller scale. Also during this time there was an increased focus on nobles and the artwork portrayed a "never-never world" type of view. There was also an increase in participation and patronage in the arts during this period where they characterized more ornate and fuzzy painting styles. The Enlightenment (c.1700-1800) was a great influence on the Rococo Art period. Two artists captured in this art gallery that have had an excessive amount of influences on the time were William Hogarth and Jean-Honore Fragonard.
