French painting

The resumption of decorative painting in the royal palaces under Henri IV following the Wars of Religion enabled the artists of the Second School of Fontainebleau to create a new decorative style. The celebrated anonymous painting of Gabrielle d’Estrées and her sister typifies the sensuality, fresh color, and Italianizing style of French court painting at this time.
