During the very early stages of the Enlightenment a new art form arose in France that quickly spread to all of Europe. This form of art was known as Rococo. Differing from Baroque art, Rococo art focused on using bright colors, paying attention to detail, and ornamenting objects to display beauty. Even though the form differed from country to country, it still appealed to all those who were wealthy and served a symbol of wealth if one owned a piece of Rococo art.

Theatre during the Age of Enlightenment became very popular and flourished across Europe, particularly in England. New theatres were built and citizens of all sorts flocked to them to see whatever play was being performed. Also during this time Shakespeare’s plays became very popular and were performed often, but were rewritten slightly to better relate to the current time.
