The modern era covers the three centuries between the end of the Middle Ages and the French Revolution. In France, it can be subdivided into three periods that are marked by important political and artistic transformations : the Renaissance (from the end of the 15th century to the first decades of the 17th century), the advent of the nation-state during the reign of Louis XIV (17th and early 18th century), and the Enlightenment (the eighteenth century until the Revolution).
