The panel will address some of the epic themes represented such as courage, sacrifice, and death, as well as the ways that changing political and philosophical systems affected the choice and execution of these subjects by artists such as Jacques-Louis David, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, François Boucher, and Rembrandt van Rijn.Purchase tickets
