award15-tiffany-rococoRococo does not characterise an actual age in art history but the last phase of the Baroque style. Rococo not distinguishes itself from Baroque by its own design-vocabulary but only by advanced and improved Baroque motifs.

The name Rococo is seen as a combination of the French words rocaille meaning stone and coquille meaning shell. It may also be related to the Italian barocco, or Baroque style. The name for the shell-like curves is not coincidental as with the
curved lines and the lack of symmetry the style still shows two basic stylistic elements. Rococo is smooth, divided into small sections, squiggly and decorative. Unlike Baroque with its theatrical bias for grandeur, power and force, Rococo stands for withdrawal to privacy, for a cultivated and gallant life, for sensuality and lightness.

It is not surprisingly so that Rococo accrued at the French Kings court in Versailles; to be exact under the regency of Ludwig XV and Madame de Pompadour approximately in 1720. This style in painting, sculpture and architecture spread itself rapidly from France through the whole of Europe.

One of its most beautiful manifestations is the Bavarian Church of Wies in the municipality of Steingaden which was built by the brothers Johann Baptist and Dominikus Zimmermann in 1745-1754. With her marvellous playful shapes she decorates the latest edition of the «Tiffany Art Collection».
