Remembering Jacques-Louis David
Influential French Neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David was born on this day in 1748.
David painted in the service of royalty, radical revolutionaries, and even an emperor! Even though his political allegiances shifted, he remained faithful to Neoclassicism. David taught a generation of students, including Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, how to work in this style.
