Periods Of Art During The Enlightment
The Rococo era began in the mid 17th century. These paintings were more personal, delicate, and charming. Painters who painted portraits depicted nobles in rural areas with their servants and house pets.
The work life of a peasant varied depending on their location. In the west of Europe serfdom had been mostly abolished. While in Eastern Europe serfs were still forced to work with no award. The new ideas that the Enlightenment brought helped the peasants in Europe slowly gain their freedom.
Unfortunately, the stereotype that the English can not cook originated at this time. Meats made up most of their meals. They did not seem capable of cooking any thing else. Most fruits were sent to the Navy after the discovery that they prevent scurvy. At the time the most popular drinks were tea and coffee. Although, tea was very expensive. A common meal was Gruel which was boiled oatmeal, butter, and often contained alcohol.
Entertainment consisted of mainly literature that discussed the new ideas that sprang up during the Enlightenment. Ideas such as all humans are equal and a more just political system then monarchy.
Ever since the first camera was invented in the early 1800s, humans have been able to take pictures. This is called photography. Photography has many purposes and a common and popular purpose is art.
