1) Jacques-Louis David, born in Paris, France on August 30, 1748 to December 29, 1825 (aged 77), was a French painter in the Neoclassical style, considered to be the preeminent painter of the era.
2) When he was younger, he covered his notebooks with drawings. Soon, he desired to be a painter, but his uncles and mother did not. He overcame the opposition, and went to learn from Francois Boucher.
3) David later became an active supporter of the French Revolution and friend of Maximilien Robespierre & was effectively a dictator of the arts under the French Republic.
4) Imprisoned after Robespierre’s fall from power, he aligned himself with yet another political regime upon his release of Napoleon, the First Consul of France.
5) At this time he developed his Empire style, notable for its use of warm Venetian colors. After Napoleon’s fall from Imperial power, he eventually exiled to UK of the Netherlands until his death.
6) In his time, he was regarded as the leading painter in France & arguably all of Western Europe. There are streets named after David in the French cities of Carcassonne and Montpellier.
