Historical Context of France
France has been an important nation in the unfolding of modernism. Throughout the 19th century, France fostered the beginnings of what is currently known as the avant-garde, with movements such as Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Art Nouveau, led by world renowned artists. During the first part of the 20th century, Paris was a fundamental intellectual and cultural hub, originating cutting-edge movements such as Cubism, Fauvism, Dadaism and Surrealism, amongst others. These movements blossomed at the beginning of the century, in the period immediately preceding the Second World War. Major French creative figures from the beginning of the century include Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque (Spanish national who settled in France) Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, and Le Corbusier amongst many of others.
