Rococo is a style of 18th century French art and interior design, at first associated with the court of King Louis XV (1715-1774). Rococo rooms were designed as total works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, sculptures, ornamental mirrors emphasizing shell-like natural curves, and complimentaing paintings. Rococo painters used delicate colors and curving forms, sometimes decorating their canvases with cherubs and myths of love. Portraiture was also popular.   continue on wikipedia 

Some typically Rococo artists are Fragonard, Boucher, Watteau and Tiepolo
The Rococo style was largely supplanted by the Neoclassical style.
