Neoclassicism

is an exhibit that features the works of French artists who painted in the time of Napoleon. With the revolution, French painting resumed its moral and political purpose and embraced the style known as neoclassicism. After 1789, artists increasingly sought noble themes of public virtue and personal sacrifice from the history of ancient Greece or Rome. (National Gallery of Art)
