The French Revolution of 1789 was the most dramatic and cataclysmic moment in French history. Wrapped up in the intricate web of this maelstrom you find the controlled and classical brushstrokes of Jacques-Louis David, a hugely influential artist and political figure. This was the era of Neo-classicism in France: the kings of the “ancien régime” were over, and a new classical era had begun. In this talk we’ll look at the art of Jacques-Louis David to see how his art – and his political rise and fall - was intimately tied with the Revolution.
