19 The Corridor

ROOM 19: The Corridor on the second floor connects the central room on the floor, The Rose, with the South-end of the Palace. The exhibits in the room date from the time of both Christian VII and Frederik VI, that is, the late part of the 18th century and the first part of the 19th. A few items are connected with Frederik V.

The Corridor contains Rococo as well as Neo-classicist styles. The styles are represented by the two sets of mirrors which are to be seen in this room. The ornamentation of the Rococo, which lies between the Baroque and Neo-classicism, is characterized by the rocaille, an ornamentation with asymmetrically winding shapes.

The Rococo, which is also known as Louis XV, came from France, whereas Neo-classicism originated in Italy. It was, however, to a great extent associated with France, and Neo-classicism from before 1790, which is dominated by straight lines and geometrical figures, is also called Louis XVI.
