Cooper-Hewitt: Rococo, The Continuing Curve

Event Date: 
Saturday, April 23, 2011
From its inception, exuberant, organic, and sensuous rococo style has inspired subsequent revivals and new movements. As rococo's influence once again gains momentum, Cooper-Hewitt invites scholars Laura Auricchio and Paul Greenhalgh to discuss the social and cultural histories behind rococo in eighteenth-century France and its revival in Art Nouveau at the end of the nineteenth century.
