More about Rococo

Here you have some short videos about Rococo art style: 

- The first one includes short texts and a lot of images. The music belongs to Jean Philippe Rameau, a musician of that period: 

- And this is the trailer of Sofia Coppola´s film Marie Antoniette, which tells the story of Louis XVI´s wife. Sofia Coppola decided to tell the story of Marie Antoinette using a contemporary music soundtrack.  Also known as Madame Déficit, Marie Antoinette´s lifestyle could be defined as Rococo: naïve, playful, superficial and frivolous. Have a look on the clothes, the parties and the decoration of palaces and gardens. They reflect the atmosphere of the royal court and nobility entertainments very well.

Hi Paqui,

You made a mistake 'plaiful' instead of 'playful'.

I didn't know this film, I have to watch it. The trailer help us to understand the end of the Madame Déficit's head ;)

Hi Alberto,

Thanks for correcting me. I´ve already changed it.

I haven´t watched the film. It didn´t have a good review, but the historical setting seems to be very good.

Keep in touch!
