In western France and Burgundy, French art and literature unfolded in the Middle Ages. In architecture in particular, standards were set: with Romanesque monasteries such as in Vézelay (Romanesque) and with Gothic cathedrals such as in Reims and Paris (Gothic). Monasteries like Cluny and municipal cathedral schools were centers of spiritual and philosophical learning. Important works of Middle Latin literature were created there.

Peripheral regions such as Brittany, the Basque Country and parts of southern France, known as Occitania, developed their own culture at times. Impressive castles and fortifications were built in Occitania, for example in Carcassonne, and troubadours performed their songs at royal courts. In the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the French kings built large castles. These include the castles on the central Loire and above all the Palace of Versailles.

In the 17th century the “classical” forms of French literature, French music and French theater developed. France became the cultural model for large parts of Europe, and French became the leading cultural language. There was a sustained great enthusiasm for theater in their own country. Molière was one of the esteemed playwrights . The Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century particularly embodied Voltaire . Montesquieu and J.-J. Rousseau developed democratic alternatives to political absolutism.

Dumas wrote over 300 adventure novels, including “The Count of Monte Christo” and “The Three Musketeers”.

At the end of the 19th century, the urban renewal of Baron Haussmann made Paris a modern metropolis with wide boulevards, star-shaped squares and large parks. In the first half of the 20th century, artists from all over the world were formed in the French capital, including the painters P. Picasso , H. Matisse and M. Chagall . American writers like John dos Passos and E. Hemingway also got their polish there. In Europe, jazz first arrived in France. On the other hand, French culture was also taken into the colonies.

An innovative film industry emerged in which French directors set trends. B. Jean Renoir and from the 1950s the independent auteur filmmakers of the Nouvelle Vague. These included C. Chabrol, J.-L. Godard and François Truffaut. The traditional chanson became an international hit, with Maurice Chevalier becoming world-famous and Edith Piaf as the “Sparrow of Paris”. The style of chanson has strongly influenced today’s French pop music (“French Pop”). Performers and songwriters of African origin are also successful there. The French comic created popular characters such as “Spirou”, “Gaston” and the “Marsupilami” (André Franquin), the “Smurfs” (Peyo) and “Yakari” (Job). “Asterix” by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo was a global success.

To this day, literature, music, art and other cultural topics are widely discussed in public in France. It is good form that French politicians also write fiction – not only, as is often the case in Germany, memories (memoirs). Football (national team “Le Bleus”), road bike races (Tour de France) and rugby are very important in sport. The French way of life, refined by wine and culinary art, “savoir vivre”, is known worldwide. With the richness of the food culture, the former President Charles de Gaulle also explains the pronounced protest culture of the French: “How do you want to govern a people who own 246 types of cheese?”
