Overview

The history of France is a history of endless renovation, combining artistic expression from every age with a style that exports fashions and trends throughout the world. In France, an artist doesn't live on the margins of society; he makes up a part of everyday life, which he enriches through his interpretations of it. There's no end to the names that have made a contribution to the unstoppable movement of ideas that culminated in the revolutionizing of human knowledge in the 20th century - from Ravel to Berlioz, Matisse to Le Corbusier, not to mention the countless literati and the five Nobel prizes won between the end of Second World War and today. The conversation of the ecological balance and the restoration of the artistic heritage are fundamental principles in France, where art and culture are consumed at every level of society, heedless of elitism. From the refined nature of the French spirit comes the ordered and multicolored beauty of the landscapes, as if the land and its inhabitants were one and the same thing. This harmony will be clear to the visitor right from the start, this synonym of civilization and beauty, virtues that this book seeks to illustrate with its remarkable collection of often surprising images.
