Becoming David

Attempting to summarize David’s career in 90 minutes is futile. Jacques-Louis David (French, 1748-1825) is one of the most discussed artists in history. His approach to Neoclassicism affected generations of artists. Combining his revolutionary artistry and political activities, makes David a perpetual well of interpretation and intrigue.

Instead of biting off his full oeuvre, at this week’s discussion between me and a group of professional artists we spent the majority of our time discussing David’s early career; his early lessons the French Academy and his many attempt for the Prix de Rome.
