    Rococo and Neoclassical Interiors

    Presented by at Davis Museum and Cultural Center

    January 18 - May 6, 2011


    Rococo and Neoclassical Interiors

    This multimedia exhibition showcases objects from the Davis Museum’s permanent collection related to the design and use of interiors in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe. It combines Rococo and exotic ornament prints, genre scenes, and fantasy views by such artists as Antoine Watteau, William Hogarth, and Giovanni Battista Piranesi with French furnishings and decorative arts to suggest the rich interrelationship among interiors and new ideas of interiority, taste, and morality in this period.

    Organized in conjunction with the Spring 2011 seminar ARTH 325, the show will feature a catalogue and gallery talks given by students enrolled in this course.

    Thomas Rowlandson, Christie's Auction Room, from the series The Microcosm of London (published 1808-1810), 1808, etching and aquatint hand-colored with watercolor. Bequest of Virginia E. Lewis (Class of 1929). From the collection of the Davis Museum at Wellesley College.
