My all-time favourite artists » Jacques- Louis David

French. Neoclassical painter. His cerebral historical painting marked change in taste away from Rococo frivolity toward a classical austerity and severity. David later became an active supporter of the French Revolution and friend of Maximilien Robespierre. Imprisoned after Robespierre’s fall from power, he aligned himself with yet another political regime upon his release, that of Napoleon I. It was at this time that he developed his Empire style, notable for its use of warm Venetian colours.
