 Art & Architecture of France - Introduction
Particularly in Paris —; where an abundance of venues is concentrated within a few square miles — it is common to find the French devoting their weekends to exploring the wealth of museums and cultural havens; many of the provincial areas are likewise blessed with impressive monuments to art and architecture.
Though relatively few artifacts remain from earlier eras, art in ancient Gaul may be traced back through the Merovingian period (beginning in the late fifth century), to the Roman Empire (starting in the first century B.C.), the ancient Celts (fifth century B.C.), and even to the Cro-Magnons of Paleolithic times (10,000 to 32,000 years ago).
In this chapter, we will discuss France's fascinating history of art — painting, sculpture, and architecture — while related topics such as literature, theatre and music may be accessed through the Table of Contents on other parts of this site.
