Abstract

        The present study aimed at acknowledging the death painting images in the works of Jacques-Louis David Painter since French revolution throughout his return from Rome to Pairs until the end of French revolution 1783-1793 AD. For this objective, the descriptive analytical approach was used. The study came up with the following findings: David depicted death by different paintings. Some of them before death, others during death, whole some of them after death. The majority of his works are loaded with enthusiastic contents, slogans that contain political and national contents. He also innovated paintings that are loaded with championships in order to approximate the art into the life as well as achieve the goals of French revolution. It concluded that David works suggest the meaning of ‘dying for principle’ and the higher interest of the nation should take the priority over both personal and emotional interests.
