Jacques Louis David - The Oath of Horatii

Painter: Jacques Louis David

Louvre, Paris, France. The struggle for dominance between Rome and Alba led to constant conflicts. A Roman legend says, that the people of two cities agreed to settle the problem by the results of the combat between three representatives from each side. Rome was represented by the triplets Horatii, and Alba also by triplets from the family of Curatii. As a result of the combat only one Horatius survived and Rome was declared the victor.
