Artist of the Day- Jacques Louis David (click on image to see more)

David was perhaps the first artist promoter! He did numerous portraits of Napoleon…made him look ‘larger than life’ …which in this case…was a help cuz…he was short!!! So short! David was a Neoclassicist. This group of artists painted in a refined way, no brushstrokes showing! They were drawn to the purity of the ‘classical’ art of Greece and Rome.
