Study for “The Intervention of the Sabine Women”

Edme Gratien Parizeau for Jacques-Louis David - c. 1799

One of David’s students, Parizeau collaborated on several of his mentor’s painting including The Intervention of the Sabine Women. Napoléon influenced the arts not only through his personal tastes, but also through his military successes. The combination of these two factors resulted in the Empire style.
