Literary and performance

 aspects of tragedy


Molière and the French spirit


  

Throughout the centuries, the history of French painting and sculpture unfailingly traces a singular curve in its search for sensitivity and balance, a curve which it is fascinating to follow in its high points, its schools and its individual geniuses. The unity of French taste can be traced in the very diversity of the masterpieces which create its tradition.

 

Developments of the arts in France


  

Frenchy art, from the Middle Ages

through today: roots and models


French classicism: fervor

and order in creation

  

N.B. Remember that in direct conjunction with this teaching module devoted to the development of the arts in France, a whole series of extramural cultural modules are offered to students as essential adjuncts, adding a “living” component to the taught classes: guided visits to French museums, concerts and plays, not forgetting screenings linked to the history of French cinema.

  

From the New Wave through

today: expansion and peaks


French cinema’s great hours

  

French cinema and

its founding fathers


Moments of a golden age


  

Classical reserve

and Romantic proliferation

the French composer

  

The religious Middle Ages and

innovations during the Renaissance


French baroque; court

music and genre music

  

The brainchild of Louis Lumière, the inventor of cinematography, French cinema was for a long time at the forefront of innovation in the narration and the forms of the 7th art. It will be interesting to examine the extent to which aspects of French cinema resonate with other forms of expression of the « French spirit », and in light of specific examples, how the development of French filming never stops marrying a persistent tradition with its renewal.

  

The theater is undoubtedly one of the privileged sites of the French mind, from the establishment of tragedy during the "Grand Siècle" (the 17th century), through modern(ist) productions in the 20th century. A profound connection with the great currents of thought, but also the place where links are made, sometimes antagonistically but always fruitfully, between tradition et modernity.

  

Theater: classicism and modernity in France

  

French cinema between invention and continuity

  

Journeys across

the French stage


Key plays in

the repertoire

  

  

  

Court music, spiritual expression, gallant variations, Romantic projections of the ego: a huge diversity characterizes the very evolution of French music. Between a variety of influences and the Italian mold, French composers have gradually defined and refined a recognizable style. The approach cannot therefore be purely chronological, and we shall try to define the characteristics of a French musical style equally through a thematic look at the genres, how they are appropriated, and the inventiveness that they suggest.

We present visually and palpably the evolution of attitudes towards the arts in a country with a keen esthetic sense, and this involves a generous view of art history understood as a history of sensibility and creation. Artistic expressions at the heart of French culture, each in its specific manifestation, but all combining to define French taste.
