Art Styles of the 1700s
Also know as Greek and Roman architecture. Painting’s were huge, colorful, and had lots of style. They glorified battles or the legacies of Saints.
This art style was elegant, personnel, and charming. Furniture and tapestries featured delicate things such as shells and flowers. Painters show subjects in positive environments with lots of happy things around them.
Some peasants welcomed the change in social classes but others wanted to
continue their own traditional lives. Other peasants got their own land to work on or worked as farmers for pay on others land. Later in the 1700s, serfdom was rooted and no longer existed and the majority of the population were peasants looking for work.
