Jacques Louis David
From LoveToKnow 1911
JACQUES LOUIS DAVID (1748-1825), French painter, was born in Paris on the 30th of April 1748. His father was killed in a duel , when the boy was but nine years old. His education was begun at the College des Quatre Nations, where he obtained a smattering of the classics ; but, his artistic talent being already obvious, he was soon placed by his guardian in the studio of Francois Boucher . Boucher speedily realized that his own erotic style did not suit the lad's genius, and recommended him to J. M. Vien, the pioneer of the classical reaction in painting .. Under him David studied for some years, and, after several attempts to win the prix de Rome at last succeeded in 1775, with his "Loves of Antiochus and Stratonice." Vien, who had just been appointed director of the French Academy at Rome, carried the youth with him to that city. The classical reaction was now in full tide ; Winckelmann was writing, Raphael Mengs . painting; and the treasures of the Vatican galleries helped to confirm David in a taste already moulded by so many kindred influences. This severely classical spirit inspired his first important painting, " Date obolum Belisario,"

Jacques Louis David
Great and complex French painter. He oscillated between baroque Rubenisme and classicizing Poussisme, and may be said to have at last reconciled these tendencies in French art. We can think of him as the last major 18th-century painter or as the originator of 19th-century art. His working life fell into quite distinct phases: ancient regime artist making a career in the Royal Academy and with official commissions from the crown; ardent revolutionary and republican supremo of the arts; hero-worshipper of, and court artist to, Napoleon; exile and archaicizing aesthete. Throughout - and this is sometimes forgotten with attention focused, as David himself wished, on the 'higher' genre of history painting he remained a brilliant portraitist. In this field, David's continuing allegiance to colorism may be perceived even in his sparest and most classical compositions. David's widowed mother took the drawing-mad boy to her relation Boucher, who recommended Vien as a teacher.

He had his first training with Boucher , a distant relative, but Boucher realized that their temperaments were opposed and sent David to Vien. David went to Italy with the latter in 1776, Vien having been appointed director of the French Academy at Rome, David having won the Prix de Rome. In Italy, David was able to indulge his bent for the antique and came into contact with the initiators of the new Classical revival, including Gavin Hamilton. In 1780 he returned to Paris, and in the 1780s his position was firmly established as the embodiment of the social and moral reaction from the frivolity of the Rococo.

His uncompromising subordination of color to drawing and his economy of statement were in keeping with the new severity of taste. His themes gave expression to the new cult of the civic virtues of stoical self-sacrifice, devotion to duty, honesty, and austerity. Seldom have paintings so completely typified the sentiment of an age as David's The Oath of the Horatii (Louvre, Paris, 1784)

He was a distant relative of Boucher, who perhaps helped his early artistic progress as a pupil under Vien (1765). He won the Prix de Rome in 1774 and travelled with his master to Rome where he spent six years. It was during this period (1775-81), that he abandoned the grand manner of his early work, with its Baroque use of lighting and composition for a stark, highly finished and morally didactic style. This was influenced by the ideas then current in Rome (Winckelmann) and by artists such as Hamilton who were already experimenting with a Neoclassical idiom. In 1784 the change of style was confirmed by the Oath of the Horatii Oath of the Tennis Court , and successfully in his pieta-like portrayal of the Death of Marat Intervention of the Sabine Women (1799, Paris, Louvre), a work which strained his Classicism in the search for Greek purity. In 1799 Napoleon gained power, and David gained a new hero. He recorded the general and later the Emperor in numerous propaganda pieces (e.g.

From the outset, David was in active sympathy with the Revolution, and =his majestic historical paintings (especially the Oath of the Horatii, Death of Socrates, and Brutus's Sons) were universally hailed as artistic demands for political action. He orchestrated the great festival of the people, 14 July 1790, and designed uniforms, banners, triumphal arches, and inspirational props for the Jacobin club's propaganda. He was elected a Deputy from the city of Paris, and voted for the execution of Louis XVI. He was active in numerous agencies of the reign of terror, and historians have identified more than 300 victims for whom David signed execution orders. He was president of the Jacobin club on the day when his good friend and fellow Jacobin, Jean-Paul Marat, was killed. Marat, friend of Robespierre, Jacobin deputy to the Convention, and editor-in-chief of L'Ami du Peuple, was a fiery orator; he was also a violent man, quick to take offense. Some saw him as an intransigent patriot; for others he was merely a hateful demagogue On July 13, 1793, a young Royalist from Caen, Charlotte Corday, managed, by a clever subterfuge, to gain entry into his apartment. When Marat agreed to receive her, she stabbed him in his bathtub, where he was accustomed to sit hour after hour treating the disfiguring skin disease from which he suffered. David, Marat's colleague in the Convention, had visited him only the day before the murder, and he recalled the setting of the room vividlly, the tub, the sheet, the green rug, the wooden packing case, and above all, the pen of the journalist. He saw in Marat a model of antique "virtue." The day after the murder, David was invited by the Convention to make arrangements for the funeral ceremony, and to paint Marat's portrait. He accepted with enthusiasm, but the decomposed state of the body made a true-to-life representation of the victim impossible. This circumstance, coupled with David's own emotional state, resulted in the creation of this idealized image.

Jacques-Louis David
French painter, who introduced the neoclassical style in France and was its leading exemplar from the time of the revolution to the fall of Napoleon.
David was born into a prosperous middle-class family in Paris on August 30, 1748, and studied at the Académie Royale under the rococo painter J. M. Vien. He won the Prix de Rome in 1774, and on the ensuing trip to Italy he was strongly influenced by classical art and by the classically inspired work of the 17th-century painter Nicolas Poussin. David quickly evolved his own individual neoclassical style, drawing subject matter from ancient sources and basing form and gesture on Roman sculpture.
His famous Oath of the Horatii was consciously intended as a proclamation of the new neoclassical style in which dramatic lighting, ideal forms, and gestural clarity are emphasized. Presenting a lofty moralistic theme, the work became the principal model for noble and heroic historical painting of the next two decades.
After 1789, David adopted a realistic rather than neoclassical style in order to record contemporary scenes of the French Revolution (1789-1799), as in the dramatic Death of Marat.
From 1799 to 1815 he was Napoleon's official painter, chronicling the reign of Napoleon I in huge works such as Coronation of Napoleon and Josephine. Following Napoleon's downfall, David was exiled to Brussels, where he stayed until his death. In these later years, he returned to mythological subjects drawn from the Greek and Roman past, painted in a more theatrical manner.

Movement, Style, School or Type of Art: Neo-Classicism David overshadows other French painters of the period as the most noteworthy bridge between the Rococo and Romantic movements. Date and Place of Birth: August 30, 1748, Paris, France Life: 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. Important Works:
