One of the most prominent Neo-classical painters, Jacques-Louis David, was born in the year 1748. Active in the political scene, he was one of the Maximilien Robespierre supporters until the end of the Reign of Terror, and later, he became one of the more solicited painters from Napoleon Bonaparte, being responsible for many astonishing oil paintings. After the revolution, David changed his style, leaving the Roman way of painting behind. He started to feature more air-brushed and painterly characters, instead of promoting muscularity and the ideal of human greatness, like Raphael did in his career.
Arrested in 1794 for being a member of the Committee of General Security, Jacques-Louis David planned this masterpiece during his years in prison. David decided to paint an oil canvas depicting the Sabine women trying to stop the conflict between the Romans and the Sabines, in honor to his wife that visited him in the Luxembourg Palace, where he was being imprisoned. The theme of the work of art would be love prevailing over violence, pleading for the people to reunite and stop the bloodshed that the revolution brought to his beloved France.
In this magnificent painting, David displays Hersilia, daughter of Titus Tatius, and Rumulus' wife standing with her arms wide open, trying to stop the furious soldiers from both sides. Next to Hersilia, and also trying to prevent the conflict and to protect the children, are other Sabine women portrayed with delicate brush strokes. Wearing a white dress and looking at her husband, Romulus, Hersilia stands in front of a multitude of soldiers bearing spears and swords. Most of the men are without clothes or armor, which was later justified by David in the endnote from the Le Tableau des Sabines, Exposé Publiquement au Palais National des Sciences et des Arts.
The leader of the Sabines, Romulus, is shown in the painting holding shield and spear, ready to slain Tatius, who is depicted as frightened and retreating. Touched by his wife's actions, he holds his attack and gives his rival a truce. In the background, the painter shows the Tarpeian Rock at the side of the Capitoline Hill, in reference to the civil conflict that was happening in Paris. This marvelous painting, with great dimensions that is one of David's trademarks, is now housed at the Louvre museum.
