DAVID, Jacques-Louis
(b. 1748, Paris, d. 1825, Bruxelles)

The Representative of the People on Duty

Pen, ink and watercolour, 315 x 220 mm
Musée Carnavalet, Paris

Painting occupied only a fraction of David's time during the Revolution. He also made designs for civic uniforms, for money and official seals and even produced two crudely drawn and vulgar caricatures that mocked the English.
