After leaving the th as a first lieutenant Petraeus began a brief association with mechanized units when he became assistant operations officer on the staff of the 2nd Brigade, 24th Infantry Division Mechanized at Fort StewartGeorgia.
David won wide acclaim with his huge canvases on classical themes e. When the French Revolution began inhe served briefly as its artistic director and painted its leaders and martyrs The Death of Marat, in a style that is more realistic than classical. Later he was appointed painter to Napoleon.
Although primarily a painter of historical events, David was also a great portraitist e. His father, a small but prosperous dealer in textiles, was killed in a duel inand the boy was subsequently raised, reportedly not very tenderly, by two uncles.
After classical literary studies and a course in drawinghe was placed in the studio of Joseph-Marie Viena history painter who catered to the growing Greco-Roman taste without quite abandoning the light sentiment and the eroticism that had been fashionable earlier in the century.
At age 18, the obviously gifted budding artist was enrolled in the school of the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. After four failures in the official competitions and years of discouragement that included an attempt at suicide by the stoic method of avoiding foodhe finally obtained, inthe Prix de Romea government scholarship that not only provided a stay in Italy but practically guaranteed lucrative commissions in France.
In Italy there were many influences, including those of the dark-toned 17th-century Bolognese schoolthe serenely classical Nicolas Poussinand the dramatically realistic Caravaggio.
David absorbed all three, with an evident preference for the strong light and shade of the followers of Caravaggio. For a while he seemed determined to fulfill a prediction he had made on leaving France: From this date David prospered rapidly.
The result, finally not based on any of the incidents in the play, was the Oath of the Horatii.
The subject is the solemn moment, charged with stoicism and simple courage, when the three Horatii brothers face their father and offer their lives to assure victory for Rome in the war with Alba; the pictorial treatment—firm contoursbare cubic space, sober colour, frieze-like compositionand clear lighting—is as austerely non-Rococo as the subject.
Eventually, it came to be regarded, although such was almost certainly not the first intention, as a manifesto for an end to the corruption of an effete aristocracy and for a return to the stern, patriotic morals attributed to republican Rome.
He added to his fame by producing in the morally uplifting Death of Socrates, in the less uplifting but archaeologically interesting Paris and Helen, and in another lesson in self-sacrifice, The Lictors Bringing to Brutus the Bodies of His Sons.
By the time the Brutus was on view, the French Revolution had begun, and this picture of the patriotic Roman consul who condemned his traitorous sons to death had an unanticipated political significance.
It also had, through its presumably accurate reconstitution of the details of everyday Roman life, an effect that was perhaps equally unexpected, for with it David began the long and extensive influence he was to have on French fashions.
Later on, even the flimsy Sabine dress, which left the breasts exposed, was adopted by the ultramodern. The artist must be a philosopher. Socrates the skilled sculptor, Jean-Jacques [Rousseau] the good musician, and the immortal Poussin, tracing on the canvas the sublime lessons of philosophy, are so many proofs that an artistic genius should have no other guide except the torch of reason.
