The construction of the Tuileries helped to create an entirely new school of French decoration.
Succeeding Francis I as patron at Fontainebleau, Henry II continued to foster the ideals of the Italian Renaissance by favouring French artists who had assimilated Italian concepts and adapted them to traditional French modes. This was seen mainly in royal building programmes, though other fields in which French artists developed a national style based upon Italian ideals included tapestries and medals.
