Extractions: David, Jacques-Louis (1748-1825) Französischer Maler, Hauptrepräsentant des Klassizismus in Frankreich und bedeutendster Maler der Revolutionsepoche. David wurde am 30. August 1748 in Paris als Sohn einer wohlhabenden Bürgerfamilie geboren und studierte an der Académie Royale unter dem Rokokomaler Joseph-Marie Vien . Sein Frühwerk orientiert sich motivisch und stilistisch zunächst an François Boucher und Jean-Baptiste Greuze , entfernt sich dann aber allmählich vom akademischen Rokoko und nähert sich einer strengen, oft monumentalen klassizistischen Malweise an. Form und Gestus sind häufig der römischen Skulpturenkunst entlehnt, mit der David während eines Italienaufenthaltes (1775-1780) in Berührung kam. Ferner dürfte das Vorbild seines Landsmannes Nicolas Poussin , der Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts in Rom tätig war, anregend auf diesen Stilwandel gewirkt haben. Charakteristisch für Davids neue Schaffensperiode ist der im staatlichen Auftrag entstandene "Schwur der Horatier" Louvre , Paris ). Mit seiner formalen Strenge, dramatischen Lichteffekten, idealisierender Figurenzeichnung und kraftvollem Gestus wurde Davids Werk richtungweisend für die heroisierende Historienmalerei der folgenden zwei Jahrzehnte.
Extractions: Name: Jacques-Louis David (body minus heart) Category: Artists Burial Location: Brussels Cemetery, Brussels, Belgium Name: Jacques-Louis David (heart only) Burial Location: Le Pere Lachaise, Paris, France. Mike's Notes: Jacques-Louis David was a major French painter. Apparently, though he died in Belgium, his heart longed for Paris, so that's exactly how they buried him: his body (minus heart) is buried in Brussels, Belgium, and his heart is buried in Paris, France. He is justly famous for his painting "The Coronation of Napoleon," which hangs a few kilometers away from his heart's burial place, in the Louvre Museum of Paris.

Extractions: He had his first training with Boucher , a distant relative, but Boucher realized that their temperaments were opposed and sent David to Vien. David went to Italy with the latter in 1776, Vien having been appointed director of the French Academy at Rome, David having won the Prix de Rome. In Italy, David was able to indulge his bent for the antique and came into contact with the initiators of the new Classical revival, including Gavin Hamilton. In 1780 he returned to Paris, and in the 1780s his position was firmly established as the embodiment of the social and moral reaction from the frivolity of the Rococo. His uncompromising subordination of color to drawing and his economy of statement were in keeping with the new severity of taste. His themes gave expression to the new cult of the civic virtues of stoical self-sacrifice, devotion to duty, honesty, and austerity. Seldom have paintings so completely typified the sentiment of an age as David's The Oath of the Horatii (Louvre, Paris, 1784)
