In 18th-century Europe, while the old order reveled in the luxurious excesses of the Rococo style and the Enlightenment sowed the seeds of revolution, libertine and memoirist Giacomo Casanova seduced his way across the continent, but he was in turn seduced by the visual splendors he encountered. Lavishly re-creating Casanova's world, this survey travels from Eastern Europe and Venice to Paris and London, depicting the era's opulent clothing, housewares, and furnishings as well as art by Canaletto, Fragonard, Boucher, Houdon, and Hogarth, along with exquisite decorative arts objects. Twelve essays provide a fascinating grand tour of Europe and pay tribute to a quintessential figure of the age.
