David, Jacques Louis


The Farewell of Telemachus and Eucharis
Oil on canvas
Private collection

David, Jacques Louis (1748-1825), French painter.
He was painter to the king, Louis XVI, who had been the purchaser of his principal works, and his popularity was soon immense.
At the outbreak of the Revolution in 1789, David was carried away by the flood of enthusiasm that made all the intellect of France believe in a new era of equality and emancipation from all the ills of life.
