ABSTRACT
Looks at the narrative modes chosen by artists Philippe-Auguste Hennequin, Pierre-Narcisse Guerin, and Jacque-Louis David, which contributed to debates concerning art's position after the French Revolution in post-Thermidor and Directoire France. Hennequin's fictional public in his allegorical `Triumph of the French People'; Guerin's `Return of Marcus Sexton' exploited the beholder's recollections; David's utopian solution in the `Intervention of the Sabine Women'; More.
