Comparison of Art 2 The first piece The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries, by Jacques Louis David which is in the style of neoclassic is distinct in the fact that it draws from the western style of the Greeks. It is a style that was an attempt to return to the classical style of both Roman and Greek. It has no pastel colors and instead has very sharp colors. In this particular painting the chair edges are very sharp and your attention is draw to it almost before seeing Napoleon himself. Its central perspective is perpendicular to the picture plane, made more emphatic by the dim arcade behind, against which the figure of Napoleon is set. Jacques Louis David is considered one of the central figures in the style of neoclassical artworks. His uncompromising subordination of color to drawing and his economy of statement were in keeping with the new severity of taste. His death of Socrates is compared to Michelangelo’s Sistine chapel.
