The 17th-century style is a period of decorative art and architecture that flourished in Europe during the 1600s. It was characterised by an emphasis on grandeur and ornamentation, with a focus on the Baroque and Rococo styles.
The Baroque style was a reaction to the Renaissance and Mannerist styles of the previous century. It featured intricate designs, elaborate ornamentation, and a focus on grandeur and theatricality. It was often used in the decoration of churches and palaces.
The Rococo style was a more lighthearted version of the Baroque. It was characterised by asymmetrical designs, pastel colors, and playful themes. This style was often used in the decoration of homes and gardens. Both the Baroque and Rococo styles were popular during the 18th century and can still be seen in many European palaces today.
