Study for “The Intervention of the Sabine Women”

Study for “The Intervention of the Sabine Women”

Jacques-Louis David - c. 1794-99

David is reputed to have painted The Intervention of the Sabine Women, with its theme of love prevailing over conflict, to honor his wife who divorced him during the Revolution. He began it while he was in prison. This work reestablished his fortunes and brought him to the attention of Napoléon, who appointed David his official painter.
