Rococo is an 18th-century art movement known for its ornate and playful style, characterized by lightness, elegance, and intricate details. Artists like François Boucher and Jean-Honoré Fragonard created works featuring pastel colors, delicate curves, and whimsical themes, often depicting scenes of love and leisure. This decorative style extended to architecture and interior design, emphasizing opulence and sophistication in its celebration of the aristocratic lifestyle.
