Rococo Decorative Arts in the National Palace Museum

  • #Antiquities


Welcome to the magic house of decoration!

You are about to travel back in time to Europe over two centuries ago. In this wonderland, decoration was a magical spell that transformed spaces and objects. This magic, later known as the “Rococo,” drew inspiration from nature and popularized a lighthearted, fantastic decorative style.

Its unique palette combined with the golden color was deeply favored by the royals and the aristocrats. This era became the charmingly delightful and decorative period of the Rococo. From walls of chambers, tables in living rooms, clocks on mantels, tableware on dining tables, to pocket watches, perfume bottles and trinket boxes, they were all covered with unrestrained, resplendent and romantic decorations that captured the hearts of Europeans in the 18th century.
