A participant in and chronicler of the French Revolution, Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825) also witnessed the rise of Napoleon, painting a series of works glorifying his reign.
Simon Lee's book is the first to deal with all aspects of David's career and character and to trace his changing relationships with patrons.
This is a fresh analysis with an abundance of new insight.
