Oath of the Horatii 2 Introduction Art can be informative and entertaining for the society. Art plays a critical role that cannot be underestimated. The Oath of the Horatii is a piece of art that very Fascinating. The art is a creative work of Jacques-Louis David in 1784. David uses the realistic style of art. The image originates from the period of the mighty Roman Empire. The art depicts two groups fighting. These are Alba and Rome. In the art, we can see women in grief signifying that they do not expect anything good to come from the war. What is interesting is that the women are untouched even as the two parties struggle for dominance. This act results from intermarriages between the two groups. David succeeds in enabling his audience to get a clear picture of how things were unfolding in this era.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
