David, Oath of the Horatii, 1784 When first publicized, first thing viewers saw was its uniqueness very unlike rococo style representation of space – not gentle transgressing Tuscan order – most primitive order – primitive antiquity most uncompromisingly plain, old, style of architecture no spatial confusion – the wall, the linearity of the stone ground – figures basically on one plane light – in rococo, about illuminating textures and details; in oath , about edges and boundaries color added almost as an afterthought Another main difference – issue of gender – unlike feminine rococo in David – figures structured by men on left, women on right Women are frail, unseeing, passive Men’s resolve summarized and reiterated 3 swords, sharp and deadly, held by the father in the center Revolution between private and public interest Only figure who looks out from realm of women is little boy – will join men Neo-classicism – brings back to Greek and Roman times

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
