The Rococo Interior: Decoration and Social Spaces in Early Eighteenth-century Paris
This handsome book offers a comprehensive and stimulating account of the forms and functions of interior decoration in Parisian domestic architecture during the first half of the eighteenth century - the period generally known as the rococo. It charts the rapid and sometimes dramatic changes in both the style and the imagery of the art of that time, and explores in illuminating detail the relationship between social status and the consumption and display of decoration in public and private interiors.
