1300 x 1600 • 1254 KB
Suzanne Le Pelletier was the daughter of a member of the French Convention, assassinated in 1793 the day after he had voted the death of Louis XVI. David also painted him after his death as he did for Marat, but it seems that Suzanne Le Pelletier bought, then destroyed the painting of her father because she was royalist.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
