|Capriccio Padovano, 1741 by Bernardo Bellatto Oil on Canvas|
Bernardo Bellotto's style reveals a taste for what is charming and elegant. Characteristic of Rococo art was paintings of wealthy carefree aristocrats at play in make-believe settings. The background scenery is often a serene natural setting with delicate trees and sprays of roses. Colors are a profusion of soothing, light pastels.
