One hundred percent the best part of rococo art is that all of it looks like someone sat down François Boucher and Jean-Honoré Fragonard and explained the basic tenets of Marxism to them in oh, 30 seconds, before giving them the command of “Paint the opposite of that, for the rest of your lives.”

Do you know what rococo art is, exclusively?

Not when we’ve got giant beribboned swings to swing on, friend!
