  • Le Antichità di Ercolano Esposte (1755 - 92) reach a wider audience
  • The beginning of the end of Rococo occurred in the early 1760s, when a handful of French students were experimenting with classical styles at the French Academy in Rome, a style taken up in avant-garde salons in Paris from the mid-1760s, as the Gout Grec ("Greek taste"), but which made no appearance at Court until the new king Louis XVI and his fashion-loving Queen came to the throne in 1771. By 1780, Rococo was passé in metropolitan French circles. It remained popular in the provinces ("French provincial") and in Italy, until the second, archaeological phase of neoclassicism, "Empire style," swept the Rococo away.
  • Paris Salon of 1761, 1763, 1765, 1767, 1769
  • European Neoclassicism in the visual arts began c. 1760 in opposition to the then-dominant Baroque and Rococo styles.
