        This is a portrait of a prisoner.

        A political prisoner at the time of the Reign of Terror in France, Andre-Antoine Bernard here is posed and styled with severity and strength. He was eventually exiled for voting to execute Louis XVI. But this defiant portrait lives on.

        Portrait of Andre-Antoine Bernard, July 24, 1795, Jacques-Louis David. J. Paul Getty Museum.
