Glossary Words

Louis XV

King of France, 1723-1774. This style had graceful, sinuous, asymmetrical lines with rococo themes.

rococo

From 'rocaille', the French word for rock- and shell-work in grottoes. Its diminutive form 'rococo' was later used to describe the playful, naturalistic motifs of fruit, flowers, foliage, shells, and asymmetrical scrolling ornament popular from the early 18th century.
