"a style of decoration distinguished by its elegant refinement in using different materials for a delicate overall effect and by its ornament of shellwork, foliage, etc."

"characterized chiefly by smallness of scale, delicacy of color, freedom of brushwork, and the selection of playful subjects as thematic material."

"Baroque artists gave up their symmetry and became increasingly ornate, florid, and playful."

"a combination of the French rocaille, meaning stone, and coquilles, meaning shell, due to reliance on these objects as motifs of decoration."

"Rococo style took pleasure in asymmetry"

"leaving elements unbalanced for effect"

"the rock and shell work of the Versailles grottoes"

"undulating lines and S-curves"

"delicate colors and curving forms"

Art Deco

"At its best, art deco represented elegance, glamour, functionality and modernity".

I LOVE art deco! I had always liked the art style in Bioshock and Batman: The Animated Series and was very happy when I learned what that was called.
