Portrait of André-Antoine Bernard, called Bernard de Saintes
Jacques-Louis David (French, 1748 - 1825)
July 24, 1795
Pen and Indian ink and gray wash, heightened with white gouache, over pencil
18.1 cm (7 1/8 in.)
The portrait conveys the intensity of his subject's political beliefs. Bernard, who was forty-four at the time, poses stiffly in a high-backed chair with his arms folded resolutely across his chest. David captured the lawyer's forceful character in the determined set of his mouth, his fixed gaze, and his strong profile.
