Charming Musée Jacquemart-André offers the immense Jacques-Louis David for a glance set of themes quite different from the great national retrospectives.  The small private mansion shelters more than one about sixty tables, paintings, drawings, recalling the immense work of this painter, true political witness of its time. This painter of history would have surely been a journalist today. Committed journalist since it supported the revolution, the Terror then the emperor until his last breath.  Its absolute monument remains this titanic painting of the Napoleon Sacre, Hollywood film in advance of centuries.  This exhibition presents some masterpieces such as the death of Marat, militant painting.  In order to build correctly this exhibition, the conservateur borrowed overall in the private collections, of which that of Firmin-Didot, editor of books illustrated by David at the time.  Some very political drawings such as the Death of Peletier, betray engagements of the artist.  These drawings and these feathers show more still than oil, the talent of draughtsman of David.  Many portraits enamel the show, great specialty of the artist:  Suzanne Peletier, Mrs Danton, the Count Estève...  A light and pleasant exhibition which conducts us in the meanders of a true technical work of painter.
