The artist

Jacques-Louis David was a French painter and conventionalist of the eighteenth century. His artistic and political work is intertwined with praise and criticism that cannot deny the impact of his influence in his time and beyond. Involved in the French Revolution, he rubbed shoulders with the most eminent French personalities. Trained at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, he became a renowned painter in 1784 with the Oath of the Horatii. David was a master for two generations of artists.
