The proposed David workshop in the Louvre
(1810. Paris, Carnavalet Museum)
This late drawing, made twenty years after the French Revolution, represents, perhaps, the workshop of Jacques Louis David at the Louvre in the golden period of the artist’s work.
On the wall is clearly visible picture of Hector (1778, Montpellier, Fabre Museum). Even after the death of the maestro, his workshop remained the meeting place of many generations of artists who followed the instructions and the classic aesthetics of David.
