What is the Festival of Art History?

Among the first events inaugurating the summer cultural season, the Festival of Art History takes place annually on the first weekend of June in Fontainebleau.

With conferences, round tables, film screenings, exhibitions, a book fair, student and professional meetings, visits of the chateau and grounds, workshops for children, and concerts, the Festival offers more than 250 events reflecting the richness of the visual arts from all periods.

For three days, specialists, students and aficionados of art meet in the exceptional setting of the Château de Fontainebleau for a moment of exchange around current research in art history.
