Renaissance In France

The French Renaissance period began during the reign of Frances I. and ran about one hundred years, ending with the formal work of Louis XIV. It followed along lines of the Italian Renaissance but was coarser and heavier in ornamental detail. Much of the work was done by Italian designers, but still it became imbued with the French Spirit and developed strong characteristics of its own. By this time the Renaissance movement had developed furi.iture to where special study was given this branch of designing. The early French Renaissance shows consiuerable intermingl;ng with the Gothic which was more iirmly rooted than in Italy.

Characteristic features are the arabesque, shields, scrolls, half figures, animal forms, cartouch, shell curved pediments, and twisted columns.
