Rococo Frames belong to a major art movement called Rococo art. This movement defined as well as Late Baroque is an art style appeared around the 1730s in Western Europe. Therefore France and Italy are the two most important protagonists of the scene. During the second half of the 18th century, the artistic movement spread over Central Europe replacing entirely the Baroque movement.
It’s style plenty of decorations, carvings, and gildings and in the field of antique picture frames reached its maximum expression under the government of Louis XV in France. The style is known as well as Rocaile style and represents the final evolution of the Baroque art. Besides, Baroque frames and Rococo style picture frames are plenty of decorations, at the point that they have been sometimes as quite heavy art styles. The real difference between the two is that Rococo combines asymmetric ornates while Baroque don’t.
In terms of shape, we can generally say that Rococo picture frames are usually lighter and more refined than Baroque Picture Frames. France, Italy and the rest of Europe, because of the different experiences they had, produced different types of Rococo style picture frames. After many years of observation of authentic frames, we believe that France has probably given to the world the most organic and solid result in terms of balance and harmonious shapes. The reason could be that France at that time was one of the strongest countries in Europe.
During the Rococo style, French picture frames happened to be the most important ones. Or at least this is the modern perception of contemporary collectors and antique dealers. The fact that Italy, probably the second major European region to be influenced by Rococo style, was not unified under a unique kingdom, could be the reason why Italian Rococo Picture Frames consist of a huge variety of different models.
If we look to some Venetian picture frames, Roman picture frames and Tuscany picture frames, they are so different between them that an observer can’t even pick similarity in terms of shapes and decorations. The Republic of Venice produced during the 18th century the biggest variety of models therefore Venetian models are the most famous in Italy for the Rococo style.
The importance of the “Serenissima”, as Venice was called during the past economic trade world, started to decline in the 18th century. The Rococo style would have been the last splendor representation of the dying republic. The Rococo Venetian Picture Frames are evidence of an extraordinary integration between different styles and artistic knowledge. In conclusion, we are proud to say that such a small republic, as Venice was, could seriously compete against the enormous kingdom of France.
