France is considered to be the citadel of fashion and a cradle of numerous art directions and movements. Web artists, who live in such a fertile and inspirational environment, are destined to come up with original ideas, exquisite designs and matchless projects; and the burden of proof lies on the best French website designs that are presented in the list below.
French culture plays a significant role in forming creative minds. Whether you are studying fine arts from ancient, almost pristine Celtic and Roman periods, or medieval period with its Merovingian art, Carolingian art, Romanesque art or Gothic or just seek some inspiration in Modern period with its Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Surrealism or even Pop art, it certainly has awesome, impactful, bizarre, thought-provoking and uplifting things.
Add to this lavish French Renaissance, Baroque, Classicism, Rococo, Neoclassicism and you will get an explosion mixture that gives you a burst of energy, which you just need to channel in the right direction. And Gaulish creatives know perfectly well how to curb it, so let’s take a look at their masterpieces.
