In part 2 of this film, learn about the Rococo era and its devotion to the pursuit of pleasure. During this era, art was freed of its religious and societal obligations and encouraged to pursue beauty alone. Learn about its influence in architecture, fashion, furniture, porcelain, sculpture and painting. Look at the works of Gainsborough, Boucher, Watteau, and gain in-depth knowledge of the subtle and not-so-subtle messages they are communicating. From child rearing to weekend getaways, the Rococo era saw changes in cultural ideals that are still part of the zeitgeist today.
