This beautifully illustrated book, originally published in 2005 in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, is the first to examine the transformation of Jacques-Louis David’s work during the post-Revolutionary period (1800 1825). Each of the works many of which were previously unknown or inaccessible is reproduced in color and accompanied by detailed scholarly information. Drawing on many new documents and close analysis of the works featured in the book, Philippe Bordes offers a revisionist view of this deeply reactive artist and the creative output of his second” career.
A beautiful book and a significant contribution to our understanding of David’s place in art history.” Art Times

[A] marvelously produced catalogue . . . meticulous and informative.” David A. Bell, New Republic
