 Women's Fashion of the 18th Century 3
The 1740s and 50s built up to what we imagine as typical rococo fashion: Wide skirts, fine fabrics, and an overdose of embroidery.
The hoop skirts that had begun to flatten and widen reached their maximum width in the mid-1740s.
However, this could still be 1770s as the style of highly formal dress hadn't changed in between.

By the 1740s, they had settled much of the Piedmont, too, and people like Thomas Jefferson were born there who would call it home throughout their lives.
The Blacksburg area of this vast, though shrinking, senatorial district would often be represented by a local man-John Preston, for example, in the 1790s, succeeded by his brother, James Patton Preston.

As the 1640s set the intellectual terms of the Restoration establishment in England and shaped the future of both church and state there, so the ideas and alliances of the 1740s shaped Revolutionary and Constitutional America, again in both church and state.

 ALEXEI PETROVICH ANTROPOV
He is recognized for bridging the stylistic gap between the painters of the Petrine period and those of the later eighteenth century, and for ending the artistic stagnation that characterized the 1730s and 1740s.
The early works of Antropov were still influenced by the parsuna tradition, but, learning quickly, he made the transition to Western portraiture with relative ease.
In the 1740s, Antropov received a number of commissions to decorate palaces in St. Petersburg, among them the Anichkov Palace and the Summer and Winter Palaces.

 Banner of Truth Trust - Book Review Thoughts on the New England Revival
Edwards (1703-1758) experienced revival during his ministry in Northampton, Massachusetts, in the 1730s, when 300 were added to the church within six months, and in the 1740s, while Whitefield was touring New England.
Edwards himself was increasingly unhappy over some of the circumstantial accompaniments of the 1740s awakening but was persuaded, unlike some of its critics, that it was substantially a glorious work of God.
He wrote several books, of which this is one, to defend the work, though acknowledging that there were errors and abuses.

 Harvard University Press: State or Merchant : Political Economy and Political Process in 1740s China by Helen Dunstan
The author investigates the scope and limits of belief in market forces among those critical of government intervention, establishing that rudimentary economic arguments for state withdrawal from the grain trade were available by 1750.
She then explores challenges, from within the ruling apparatus, to the state's claim that its own stockpiling served the public interest, as well as the factors behind decisions in the mid- and late 1740s to suspend or decrease state purchases of grain.
As a study of Confucian government in action, this book describes a mode of public policy discussion far less dominated by the Confucian scriptures than one might expect.

In American revival history the Great Awakening (a term actually applied one hundred years later to the New England revival of the 1730s and 1740s) is the Holy Grail.
Those who had come from a background rich in revival history, who expected special periodic outpourings of God’s mercy, saw the 1740s as the answer to their prayers.
Those who had not come from such a background either ignored the whole thing or saw it as “irrational exuberance,” resulting from hype, propaganda, excellent use of PR and the press.
