This examination of a distinctive period of French painting discusses the interrelated artistic cities and regions that formed essential links in Renaissance-era artistic exchanges. The interaction between the French courts and Paris during the International Gothic period, the diffusion of ars nova in France during the days of Charles VII and Louis XI, and the standardization of a French style based on Jean Fouquet's model are among the artistic geographies considered in this analysis. Reproductions of key works that illustrate cultural confluences accompany an updated introduction to the scholarship of these relationships.
