Join us for a virtual art talk! From the over-the-top-lavish lives of the royals at Versailles to portraits of revolutionary leaders to triumphant images of Napoleon, this program will examine artwork from this period of tremendous political upheaval. With works by French masters including Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun, Jacques-Louis David and Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, we’ll consider the role of paintings in the struggle for power in the late 1700s and early 1800s.
