List and describe three distinct features of Rococo art and/or design?

  • Rococo superseded Baroque design, changing the grandeur, symmetry, and strict regulations of Baroque style. Rococo design acted as a more subtle extension of Baroque style. It was a lighter, more graceful, yet also more elaborate version of the previous Baroque style.

Describe some of the evolution in furniture that came out of these eras.

The furniture of both eras were very ornate. The lighthearted appearance and intricate designs of Rococo presented themselves best at a more intimate scale than the imposing Baroque design.
