The Rococo style came about in France in the early 18th century, mainly as a reaction to the very grand and opulent style of the Baroque period, and the extreme grandeur of the Palace of Versailles. The Rococo artists and sculptors used a softer approach, and although still very ornate, were also colorful. The first great Rococo painter was Jean-Antoine Watteau, and his influence can be seen in the later work of Jean-Honor Fragonard. The most widely known Italian Rococo artist was Canaletto, born in Venice in 1697, and whose paintings of Venice, London and some of the finest country houses in the UK are particularly famous. Piazzo San Marco is an oil on canvas painting by Canaletto, finished in during the late 1720’s and on view at the Met Fifth Avenue.
As you know this is the 3rd Monet painting I have received from you. They are really lovely and look so attractive now that they are framed and shown together as a set. Thank you for some very fine work.
