Jacques-Louis David

Jacques Louis David [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Jacques-Louis David by Dorothy Johnson,Director School of Art and Art History Dorothy Johnson Book Summary:

Painted just before the French Revolution, David's Oath of the Horatii radically challenged the long-dominant classicized rococo style by emphasizing the representation of psychological states through the entire body rather than through the face alone. In these revealing essays on David's modernity, Dorothy Johnson examines the aesthetic innovations and ongoing artistic metamorphosis that shaped a career attuned to intellectual as well as political change. Focusing on the painter's writings and on topics such as his life-long experimentation with corporality, his inquiry into the nature of representation, his reinterpretations of mythology, and his application of the theory and language of sculpture to his art, Johnson rejects oversimplified categorizations of David as a neoclassicist and positions him as an important link in the development of romanticism. Given David's interaction with many of the public figures of his time, including Diderot, Marat, and Napoleon, this book highlights the intellectual content of his paintings throughout his career. Inquiries into the transformation of matter, the evolution of the species, the identification and exploration of the stages in the formation of the self, the psychology of myth, the biological model of the waxing and waning of civilizations, and the organicity of history all parallel and inform David's approach to the making of art and his view of himself as an artist in the continuum of history.

Jacques Louis David [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Jacques Louis David and the French Revolution (Classic Reprint) by Wilhelm Reinhol Valentiner Book Summary:

Excerpt from Jacques Louis David and the French Revolution Servan, painted about impresses one as a composition of statu esque simplicity expressing the salient spirit Of a period which was seek ing fundamentally new doctrines by which to govern life. The portrait by Rigaud, the famous court painter of the reign of Louis XIV, painted in the beginning of the century, and Of Boucher's portrait of Madame de do not differ too much from another in style. Rococo period the surface is filled with a restle lines; light and shadow are alternated perpetually at close intervals; the colors form a pleasing pattern of small variegated patches, and the costume and accessories almost eclipse the real motif - that of portraiture. In David's canvas the fig ure emerges Clearly from a wide and empty space, and a clear, flowing line with definite horizontals and verticals has replaced the tortuous curves. It seems an extraordinary piece Of daring for the artist to have composed in these broad planes with a completely empty background, when we consider the century-old tradition embodied in the Older paint ings.rit was the French Revolution, with its rejection of old formulas which inspired this daring.

Jacques Louis David: 78 Drawings

Jacques Louis David [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Jacques Louis David: 78 Drawings by Narim Bender Book Summary:

Jacques-Louis David was an influential French painter in the Neoclassical style. His history painting marked a change in taste away from Rococo frivolity toward a classical asceticism and severity, heightened feeling chiming with the moral climate of the final years of the Ancien Régime. He later became an active supporter of the French Revolution and friend of Maximilien Robespierre, and was effectively a dictator of the arts under the French Republic. 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. After Napoleon's fall from power and the Bourbon revival, David exiled himself to Brussels in the then-United Kingdom of the Netherlands where he remained until his death. His work had a resounding influence on the development of French - and indeed European - painting, and his many pupils included Gеrard, Gros, and Ingres.
