Rococo, also less frequently called Late Baroque or Early Rococo, is a very theatrical and ornamental style of art, architecture and decoration that combine dramatic asymmetry, decorative curved lines, trompe l'oile and intricately sculpted patterns, white and pale pastels, molded molding and trompe l'oile, to create the illusion and dramatic effect of movement and drama. A more decorative version of the classic Roman style, this style is the work of a number of prominent artists and craftsmen, including Caravaggio, Caruso, Botticelli and Mantegna. The style was particularly popular during the 18th century, with many famous painters representing it, such as Titian and Monet.
While many scholars believe that Rococo's artistic style evolved over time, it is difficult to determine when he first began to make use of this style. Most historians believe that it developed in Naples during the 15th century. During that time, artists were taking advantage of the wide range of colors available in the city, as well as the popularity of Italian porcelain. During that period, artists were able to apply many different materials and techniques to this style.
In order to best understand this Baroque Rococo Style, one must be familiar with the different types of materials used for the construction of ceramics. For example, many ceramics, such as porcelain, were made from marble, as marble is very absorbent and allows moisture to be evaporated quickly, making it ideal for staining and glazing ceramics. Another material used was known as vermiculite, which is made from crushed shells.
Artists and craftsmen also used other types of materials, such as shells, jute, wood, metal and even leather and silk to create the final product. Many of the details of the style are still apparent today, including the use of white, blue or green on the porcelain and glass objects. In addition, there are a variety of techniques that were used, including the use of a roller mold, trompe l'Oyle, a method where the artist uses a small brush to apply the design to the surface of the object, the use of glazing, where the object is covered with a semi-transparent material, as well as oil on canvas, in order to allow the color of the glaze to show through. Another technique used in this style is known as filigree, which is the application of various geometric shapes and designs, which look like crystals, on the surfaces of the objects.
One type of object in the Baroque Rococo Style is the use of colored glass. These can range from the inclusion of an opal or amethyst to the use of colored enamel on the glass objects. Another feature of the style is the use of small figurines, including statuettes and angels, and many paintings have intricate scenes and floral patterns, such as roses or other flowers.
Another aspect of the Baroque Rococo Style is the use of gold leaf, which is typically inlaid into the surfaces of the objects. This is often done on the walls of the rooms where the painting is to be hung. Other materials can include silver, copper and even porcelain.
There are many variations in the techniques and materials that are used to finish off the surface of the objects in the Rococo style. Some of the finishes include patina, which is a protective layer, which is a thin layer of mineral coating, which can also be applied to the surfaces of objects. Other finishes include frosted, painted or etched, depending on the object being painted.
There are several different materials that can be used to paint the objects, but the most popular are oil, pigment and paper, with paper being the most expensive. The paintings themselves are usually hand-painted, although there are also several artists who use stencils to make the designs. Most of the work was done by skilled artisans and so they all have their own skills and techniques, which make the work unique. Although the Baroque Rococo Style has been lost to history, it's still enjoyed and continues to be appreciated for its beauty and its artistic merit.
