Fraternité: French Artists from Revolution to Romanticism

The Revolution of 1789 transformed French art. Neoclassicism, embodied in the paintings of Jacques-Louis David, became the style of the day. This series explores the rise of Neoclassicism, culminating with its embrace by Emperor Napoleon. The fall of the Empire in 1814 paved the way for the emerging Romantic aesthetic.
