What did Johannes Gutenberg invent and why?

In the mid-1400s, Johannes Gutenberg invented the movable type. The movable type allowed printing to be much more efficient and cheaper. The movable type used blocks, with one letter on each. The blocks were arranged to form a page of the book or newspaper that was to be printed, and then the blocks were rolled over with ink. Then a sheet of paper was pressed on the blocks, transferring the ink on it. Although Johannes Gutenberg did invent printing, he did not invent printing itself. Hundreds of years before him, Chinese and Japanese people carved wooden blocks to print letters and pictures. In 1045, a Chinese printer named Bi Sheng invented an early version of the movable type, but Chinese had too many characters in it. Gutenberg's version of the moveable type was much more efficient.

Who paid Jacques Louis David to paint The Tennis Court Oath?

The Tennis Court Oath painting was commissioned by the Jacobin Club on October 28th 1790 as a commemorative piece of the actual Tennis Court Oath event which took place on June 20, 1789. The original idea was that the project would be financed through the subscription of engravings of the piece, which members of the Jacobin Club had the first opportunity to purchase. The sale of the subscriptions would provide the funding necessary for David to complete the large scale painting which was to be hung in the National Assembly. Due to the fact that not enough subscriptions were sold the project had to be financed initially through the government. A pen and ink drawing was completed in 1791 and shown at the Paris Salon of 1791 as well. This was a small scale drawing and was intended to be a study for the enormous piece David was working on. Because of the tumultuous political climate that was incited by the French Revolution, David had to abandon his project sometime around 1792. There are many conflicting reports surrounding this piece and David supposedly published reports in newspapers in 1801 that he had in fact abandoned the project altogether due to lack of subscription sales, not because of politcial opposition. When the government funding ran out is hard to tell, but I think it may be safe to say that the government that once thought of David's cause as noble had long since changed its mind. I am working on a thesis paper on this subject right now so if anyone has any questions or comments please let me know.
