English Neo-Palladian and Georgian Decorative Arts

Again we are seeing decoration within buildings to be the main form of decorative art. Not as much emphasis is placed on the exterior and wealth is truly shown through the interior environments.

Most grand interiors feature oil paintings collected on grand tours. They hand flat and symmetrically inside panels. Specially designed niches or cabinets display ancient sculptures or collections. Other accessories include painted and gilded wall brackets, folding screens, and fire screens following the forms and decoration of furniture.

“Factories in Chelsea, Worcester, Caughley, and Spode manufacture porcelain beginning in the 1740’s. Adopting Chinese and European styles, the factories produce table sets, tea, coffee, and chocolate sets, figurines, and sets of figures with Rococo and Chinoiserie decoration.”

Here are some examples of English Neo-Palladian and Georgian Decoration.
