During the final years of Louis XIV’s reign the Regency style was already in the making. This style goes hand in hand with the changing lifestyles of the period and peaks in the Louis XV style known for its curving lines – rococo. In turn, two new artistic expressions evolve from Louis XV's rocaille – the Marie Antoinette style and the Louis the XVIth style.

The stylistic movements allow the blossoming of a new taste. These are the Bizarres, Décors à dentelle, Naturalistes, Rocaille - Rococo, Exotism, le Néo-classicism. They fit into each other and it is sometimes very risky to establish quick classifications.

In terms of artistic expressions so different it is easy to marvel at the fertility of a century that will leave a lasting impression in France and throughout Europe. Below is a reasoned selection.
