Discover why the eighteenth century is called the Age of Enlightenment. Throughout this program, the significance of eighteenth-century developments on subsequent eras is highlighted. Rococo and the beginning of classical style are explored through the finest examples of painting, sculpture, architecture, and music of the period. The program gives a comprehensive review of the era and examines the principles of order, rationality, and clarity that marked its aesthetic. It also identifies contemporary artists, philosophers, and politicians and contrasts aristocratic decadence and impending revolution. Includes Teacher's Guide
