Nicole Myers, The Lillian and James H. Clark Curator of European Painting and Sculpture at the Dallas Museum of Art, will present a lecture entitled The Craze for Boucher: The Rococo Revival in 19th-Century France as part of the Museum's "Art in Context" series, in conjunction with the exhibition “Casanova: The Seduction of Europe.”

Starting slowly as an underground movement, the revival of Rococo art forms exploded into an all-out cultural phenomenon in France over the course of the 19th century. Artists of all stripes responded to the revival, particularly the more hedonistic qualities associated with Boucher and his contemporaries. This talk will explore the Rococo revival through the works of such avant-garde artists as Gustave Courbet, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir and Berthe Morisot.
