JACQUES-LOUIS DAVID (French / 1748-1825)

As a young man, Jacques-Louis David went to the Rococo painter François Boucher and asked him to be his teacher. Boucher, realizing that his own light and flirtatious art was going out of fashion, sent him instead to Joseph-Marie Vien, whose style was more attuned to the coming classicism. Jacques-Louis David became one of the greatest of the French neoclassicists. David was court painter to the French Revolution.
