*Rococo Revisited
Early Gustavian eighteenth century Swedish manor,  west of Stockholm.

 Gustavian style is in essence the style brought to Sweden by King Gustav III. A ruler who propagated culture and an advocate of the European Enlightenment, the King’s patronage of the visual arts was linked with patriotic ambition and an admiration for the French courtly life at Versailles. He spent part of 1770-71 in France, where he acquired a passion for the Neo-classical style. During his reign numerous palaces and country houses were built or refurbished in the Neo-classical style, either for himself or for members of his family and court. Early Gustavian interiors (c. 1770-85) were light and elegant interpretations of the Louis XVI style, with echoes of English, German and Dutch influences.
