French Baroque and Rococo Fashions
Fashion ruled the courts of the "Sun King," Louis XIV (1638–1715), and his successor, Louis XV (1710–1774). The Sun King forced the courtiers of Versailles to adopt his grand Baroque styles. A lighter fashion sense prevailed at the court of Louis XV, who favored Rococo styles. 45 full-page black-and-white illustrations.
