Europe, 1715 to 1774

The Rococo style succeeded Baroque Art in Europe. It was centered in France, and is generally associated with the reign of King Louis XV (1715-1774). It is a light, elaborate and decorative style of art.
Quintessentially Rococo artists include Watteau, Fragonard, Francois Boucher, and Tiepolo.
Rococo was eventually replaced by Neoclassicism art, which was the popular style of the American and French revolutions.
