Jacques-Louis DAVID (1748-1825), the leading figure of Neoclassicism, starts his career at the end of the reign of Louis XVI. The most important painter of the Revolution and the First Empire, he ended in exile in Belgium, under the Restauration. The Recueil de documents published by Daniel and Guy Wildenstein in 1973 retraces his story from an artistic, political, and personal point of view. It also assembles supplementary information including a list of David’s students, his genealogy, and an extensive bibliography.
