Louis XVI <div>LOUIS XVI AND THE NEO-CLASSICAL STYLE</div><div>Louis XVI (1774 1792) married Marie Antoinette of Austria when he was fifteen and she was just fourteen. The arranged marriage was a political alliance between the youngest daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor and the Empress Maria Theresa and the grandson of Louis XV, the King of France. Louis XVI ascended the throne upon his grandfathers death at the age of 20. As Marie Antoinette began to commission furniture and decorative arts for her rooms at Versailles, a style quite different from the previous Louis XV style was chosen.</div><div>In 1748, the unexpected discovery of the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum caused a tremendous impact on the history of furniture and the decorative arts. The cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius in Italy, were buried under ash in 79 AD when the volcano erupted. The ensuing excavations of the perfectly preserved cities led to a frenzied interest in all things Greek and Roman. This new interest in the Classical world (Neo-Classicism) led to the inclusion of classical decorative motifs in furniture production, such as carved pillars, brass columns, rosettes (paterae) and mythological figures. In France, this style is known as the Louis XVI style and its hallmark is a return to straight lines and symmetry in opposition to the dramatic curves and asymmetry of the Louis XV style. The cabriole leg was supplanted by the straight spindle shaped and fluted leg. Carvings of baskets of flowers, especially roses, and flowing ribbons were in abundance.</div><div>The reign of Louis XVI came to a sudden end with the French Revolution. An angry mob, disillusioned with the excessive spending and inefficiency of the royal family, captured and beheaded Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. However, the Louis XVI style has endured. The style enjoyed a resurgence in the first quarter of the twentieth century and is still considered to be a classic today.</div>
