Art for Travellers France Summary

Art for Travellers France: The Essential Guide to Viewing Art in France by Bill Hannan

France holds some of the most remarkable and well-known collections of art in the world. This thorough and accessible guide covers every possible epoch, taking travellers on a guided journey through centuries of wonderful paintings, architecture, and sculpture. Concentrating on the great art movements that originated in France, it begins with the cathedrals of the Middle Ages and then moves on to the enormously popular painting of the 19th-century Impressionists and those who followed them. The French have also collected a great deal of art from other countries. Like the Impressionists' work, most of these collections are in museums in Paris. In a series of art trails - itineraries that cover the most important works in the country - travellers are taken on tours of the best art in France. Written in a friendly, informative style, it is designed for the traveller who is serious-but not stuffy-about art. Not only does it give specialised coverage of art in France, it will also save the visitor the expense of purchasing numerous gallery guides. The guide features: - Coverage of the background of French art and its cultural context - Brief biographies of individual artists - Expert knowledge presented in a friendly, informative style - Details and descriptions of the outstanding pieces at every site - Interesting critical descriptions of works and explanations of technical terms - Maps highlighting places to visit, including intercity routes - Diagrams and drawings
