Socrates’ commitment to his ideals is portrayed with grace and dignity in the masterpiece, “The Death of Socrates,” by Jacques-Louis David (1748 – 1825). David portrays Socrates as an unjustly persecuted, principle-bound father figure through his ingenious use of light and dark accents. David unveiled this painting, whose virtuosity has been compared to that of Michelangelo and Raphael, as a call to arms on the eve of the French Revolution.

Comments:

I returned this product because I was disappointed with the quality. I got the 16x12 print, which looked fuzzy compared to the original (and I think also cuts off a bit on the left side). It didn't have anywhere near the visual impact of the painting due to its fuzziness (and also the fact that it's in black and white, instead of the original color version).
I'm giving two stars simply because the poster arrived safely and I didn't have any problems with the return. Unfortunately, the poster itself was a let-down.

  • This premium giclee print, an upgrade from the standard giclee print, is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclee prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world. Giclee (French for 'to spray') is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto a high-quality paper. The smooth transitions of color gradients make giclee prints appear much more realistic than other prints. More
