"Death of Marat"
The name of this painting is called the "Death of Marat" by David. The painting is said to be created in 1793 and is currently located in the Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels. The detail and contrast in this painting is great. This is an oil painting and is considered to be in the french neoclassicism movement. David painted the slain revolutionary hero like a modern day Christ. You can see what the artist was going for when painting. In conclusion the painting is very detailed and a unique painting because it is based off of history.
