Part 1Unknown - 2010
In this film, look at the rise and influence of Rococo. From approximately 1700 to 1790, this Rococo era saw the first great age of leisure travel as the wealthy of Europe found pilgrimage in "The Great Tour." Along this tour, artists and architects embarked on a quest to combine reality with whimsy as old cultural boundaries were being changed and redefined. From Robinson Crusoe to Canaletto, take a look at the climate and culture as well as the brilliant work that came out of Rococo.
