Jacques – Louis David
I am sorry that I have not posted in a little while. Another favorite – and more traditional – artist is Jacque – Louis David. An influential French painter in the Neoclassical style, he was considered to be the preeminent painter of the era. His historical painting marked a change in taste away from Rococo frivolity toward a classical austerity and severity.
I love all of the detail. I was not able to post them any larger but if you click on the pictures themselves they are a little bit easier to see. I hope that you enjoy.
To give a body and a perfect form to one’s thought, this – and only this – is to be an artist.
