This week, France celebrates the people who freed the country from absolute monarchy, on July 14, 1789.
On this symbolic day of national union, discover with Artsper the extent of our French artists’ talent who, whether it be in painting, street art or photography, contribute to the diversity of the french arts and heritage.
Taking part in different artistic movements, French artists have always managed to surprise us through their artistic processes and their great pragmatism which combines philosophy, artistic creation and social commentary.
