~Jacques-Louis David

Jacques-Louis David

by Jacques-Louis David (French 1748-1825)
~ Coronation of Napoleon and Josephine (detail)

David was a highly influential French painter in the
Neoclassical style, considered to be the preeminent
painter of the era. In the 1780s his cerebral brand
of history painting marked a change in taste away
from Rococo frivolity toward a classical austerity
and severity, heightened feeling chiming with the moral
climate of the final years of the ancien régime.
