Below: Pictures 1 and 2 show the mob around Leonard Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa". If you see the painting, you may ask why.
Picture 4 is from "The Funeral At Atala", by Anne-Louis Girodet.
Picture 5 is the world's second largest painting "The Coronation of Emperor Napoleon I", by Jacques-Louis David.
Picture 6, "The Young Martyr", by Paul Delaroche.
