French Art Guide

The works of French artists are among the highlights of the collection of the Saint Louis Art Museum. This resource has been designed to facilitate teaching and learning about these works, for students of French language and culture as well as students of art. You may enter the site in English or French, and for each artwork you will find information on the Work, the Historical Moment, the Artistic Genre, and the Artist.  Teachers will find a link for Guides for Educators, in English or French.  The site may be accessed through this link:  The project director is Dr. Jeanne Zarucchi, Professor of Art History and French.  For more information, please contact her at
