About this film →

Rococo art is often dismissed as frivolous and unserious. But Waldemar Januszczak disagrees. In this revolutionary three-part series he re-examines Rococo art, and argues that the Rococo was actually the age in which the modern world was born. Picking three key territories of Rococo achievement – Travel, Pleasure, and Madness – Waldemar will celebrate the finest cultural achievements of the period and examine the drives and underlying meanings that make them so prescient.

Episode 1: Travel
Episode 2: Pleasure
Episode 3: Madness
