Jacques-Louis David

French Neo-Classicism Painter

David overshadows other French painters of the period as the most noteworthy bridge between the Rococo and Romantic movements.
David had great timing. Though his passionate support of and paintings about the French Revolution landed him in prison, they also made his career. Academically trained, his history paintings were technically flawless, but it took his Revolutionary intensity to incite him to paint the compositions for which he became famous. David had enormous influence on the next two generations of painters, having taught some (Gros and Ingres), while inspiring others (the Impressionists) to try new things.

The Oath of the Horatii, 1784
Oath of the Tennis Court, 1791
