Scope note
Refers to the style of 18th-century Italian architecture and sculpture associated with the Rococo and characterized as lighthearted, imaginative, elegant and decorative. Sculpture features dramatic gestures, open poses, and sweeping drapery as with the work of Camillo Rusconi, whose sculptural compositions portray an unorthodox sense of playfulness and intimacy.
