Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment
Rococo echo
art, history and historiography from Cochin to Coppola

Volume: Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment 2014:12
Series editor: Jonathan Mallinson
Volume editor(s): Melissa Lee Hyde, Katie Scott

‘an impressive and authoritative volume addressing the complex and various ways in which the eighteenth-century style persists as an alluring echo long after it was deemed redundant.’
Melanie Cooper, Ceræ: an Australian journal of medieval and early modern studies (vol.3 (2016))

‘Uprootedness, global dislocations, and eccentric visions of time are at the centre of this edited collection, which seeks to reframe the rococo as a discursive style perennially reactivated and reformulated from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries […] Ranging in scope beyond painting and interior decoration, the subjects discussed are refreshingly diverse’.
Iris Moon, French Studies (April 2016)

‘Le lecteur est invité à s’interroger tout d’abord au niveau méthodologique, sur les limites et les potentialités propres à certaines catégories historiographiques, puis au niveau philosophique, à remettre en question la notion d’art elle même, notamment dans ses liens avec la politique et la société’.
Marina Leoni, Dix-huitième siècle (no.48 (2016))
