CDR-1325: SR Set: Important Trends in Eighteenth Century Painting

The trajectory of 18th century painting ran a remarkable gamut: from frothy decorative Rococo, through the fusion of nature and antiquity which produced a moral force seen in the Neo-Classicism of David and the outrage of Goya. The images presented here illustrate and reflect the points made by Michael Levey in his book "Rococo to Revolution: Major Trends in Eighteenth Century Painting." February 2014
