Historical Context of France

France strikes out as one of the most influential agents of modernism. What is today known as the avant-garde was established in the first half of the nineteenth century, and included progressive and ground-breaking movements such as Impressionism, Post-impressionism and Art Nouveau, driven by key figures of the art world. Applauded and leading French artists from the early years of the twentieth century include Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, although he originally was a Spanish national who settled in France, as well as Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, and Le Corbusier, to name a few. Paris was considered to be the most important and intellectual artistic centre at the onset of the century and contributed to the development of such fundamental movements as Cubism, Fauvism, Dadaism and Surrealism, amongst others, which flourished in the post war era.
