Socrates is one of the most impressive personalities in history. When he was sentenced to death in Athens for his supposedly pernicious influence on youth and godlessness, he was given the opportunity to propose an alternative sentence. When he declared that at most a fine was appropriate, 80 of the 501 jurors changed their vote and instead of 281, 361 voted for the execution of Socrates through the hemlock. Out of respect for the law, Socrates did not realize the possibility of escape. David takes a series of historical freedoms in his painting: Socrates himself is portrayed as younger and more idealized, whereas Plato, sitting as a retired old man at the foot, was at that time a young man and not present at the execution. Kriton sits in front of the couch, his hand on Socrates' thigh. © Meisterdrucke
