18th Century
The art of the 18th century built on and exaggerated the tendencies of earlier periods yet became more refined, more delicate, more sensuous, more intellectual, more emotional, and more secular. It was the age of the Enlightenment when the human intellect eclipsed faith as the guiding force of civilisation. In many ways 18th century art was the art of France where the Boubon dynasty reshaped fashion, style and manners.  A portion of 18th century art reflected the highly decorative and flamboyant rococo style.  Some notable artists of the time included Watteau, Fragonard, Gainsborough, and William Blake.
