Jacques-Louis David

(1748-1825)

Jacques-Louis David was an authority in art. His paintings are of massive scale, yet the details are very accurate and clear. He created his art and presented a public and political statement through it. His classical ideas were expressed with realism, a strong sense of composition and crisp handling of paint. The emotions of the characters in his works are very clear, as it is intended to be.

Key artwork: Death of Marat, 1793
