French Contemporary Art

Generally speaking, Contemporary Art is defined as all works of art produced from 1945 to the present day. This definition does not exclude any artistic style, even though plastic arts are the most frequently mentioned form.

French Contemporary Art lags behind other countries. This is due to the fact that French artists find it difficult to sell in their own country. Indeed, the sluggishness of the private market impacts the export of French Contemporary Artworks. French artists mourn the shortage of galleries willing to exhibit their work internationally. Also, a country like the United States relies on the free market when it comes to works of art. In France, however, the private market must sometimes replace public purchases. Because of this phenomenon, other countries’ markets tend to undervalue French official art.
