Jacques Louis David is the leading representative of French classicism, the main spokesman for the history of the Revolution and Napoleonic rule. Formed in Italy under the influence of the artistic language of Raphael (1483 – 1520), Caravaggio (1571 – 1610) and Nicolas Poussin (1594 – 1665), he departs from court painting, from the taste of rococo, bizarre forms and serpentine lines towards the canon, again affirming principles of ancient art.
