This paper will explore the origins and manifestation of neo classicism in France in the period from 1760 to 1848. As will be seen, neo classicism exerted a profound influence not only on the art of France during this period, but also upon its culture and political theory. However, as will be seen, French neo classicism was significantly influenced by events that took place outside of France, such as the excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum in Italy. While these discoveries contributed more to an interest in all things classical rather than to specific artistic or cultural occurrences in France at this time, they nonetheless suggest something of the transnational nature of the neo classicism movement.
