The art of Jacques-Louis David is a prime example of Neoclassicism, a style of history painting that flourished in France during the late 18th- and early 19th-centuries. From King Louis XVI’s execution during the French Revolution through the fall of Napoleon’s reign, David painted some of France’s most important historical figures, including royalty, radical revolutionaries to Emperor Napoleon himself.
One of the largest and most prestigious art collections in the world, the Musée du Louvre has been a leading institution since its inception in 1793. Iconic masterpieces include the statue of Venus de Milo, Winged Victory, and Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
