French Cancan is a 1954 French musical film written and directed by Jean Renoir and starring Jean Gabin and María Félix. Where Renoir’s previous film Le Carosse d’or had celebrated the 18th century Italian commedia dell’arte, this work is a homage to the Parisian café-concert of the 19th century with its popular singers and dancers. Visually, the film evokes the paintings of Degas and the Impressionists, including his own father Pierre-Auguste Renoir. It also marked his return to France and to French cinema after an exile that began in 1940. LESS
View a slideshow about The French Parnassus by Louis Garnier (ca. 1638 - Paris, 1728): www.metmuseum.org Curator James Draper, Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, speaks about a tradition of bronze sculpture developed in France beginning in the sixteenth century. While influenced by achievements of the Italian Renaissance, the French tradition manifested its own distinct refinement and force. "Cast in Bronze," on view at the Met February 24 through May 25, 2009, included approximately 120 of the finest statuettes, portrait busts, and monuments by masters such as Germain Pilon, Barthélemy Prieur, Michel Anguier, François Girardon, Antoine Coysevox, Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, and Jean-Antoine Houdon. Seen together, these works revealed the French genius for bronze from the late Renaissance through the times of Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XVI.
