This important book-based on the proceedings of an international symposium-explores David's grand projects of the Empire period and the often mysterious works produced in his last years as a political exile. 

David after David features twenty-one essays by leading art historians that discuss these later works--which include innovative portraits as well as paintings and drawings that address the opposing themes of the antique and modern--in the aesthetic, political, and social contexts of their production and reception. The book also draws upon recently discovered letters the artist wrote in exile and provides fascinating new perspectives into his life and art.
