This excellent book published on the occasion of an exhibition

presents two remarkable personalities of this painter - a celebrated and controversial painter of his time and his connection with Napoleon Buonaparte.The second helped him in the way to the admiration , after a revolutionary republican beginning.The first cannot forget a notable draftman and painter,with followers such as Gros , Ingres,Thévenin,...

Even in the exile,his portraits are precious.Connecting or not

one part of his life as official painter of Napoleon, forgetting

or not his revolutionary starting , David remains ,as Stendhal

defended , the greatest painter of 18th century.
