***** Nature of Art

*****, political, or economic conditions can alter the nature and meaning ***** art. Indeed, all of these conditions can alter the nature and meaning of *****, as these eras indicate. The opulence that is exhibited at the H***** of Mirrors in Versailles was art "over ***** top," with every square ********** ***** available surface decorated to the extreme. Unlike ***** Romantic era, where art celebrated the religious and the beauty of art, Versailles is an excellent example ***** art taken to ***** extreme, not for spiritual or domestic uses, but for pure aesthetics *****d opulence.

Rococo actually derived from the opulence of Louis IV's *****, as a protest *****gainst the opulence and some believed tasteless display of wealth and power. Rococo ***** lighter ***** less showy, although it still combined great attention to detail and design. This clearly shows just how social and economic conditions can alter the nature and meaning of *****. People were reacting negatively ***** the wealth and ***** of King Louis' court, and because of this, *****y created a new, ***** opulent style ***** art.

In addition, the Romantic era ushered in more spirituality ***** idealism, and much less need ***** opulent displays of wealth and power. Romantic artists ***** interested in new techniques and ideas, along with ***** ways of showing them to the world. William Blake's works included writings and illustrations, some ***** which were a bit moody and gothic, which also characterized this era. It was a time of modernization, when the opulence of the past simply did not seem relevant or even desirable any m*****e, and it again illustrates just how different ***** and ideas about society and money can alter art and artists' works. Art mirrors society ***** society's interests, which is why it has always changed through *****, and will continue to do so.
