Three sons in battle garb put forth his hands to his father. The old man blessed oath sons and admonishes them before the fight.

"Andromache" David brought the title of academician, and the "Oath of the Horatii" - world famous. The news about the extraordinary canvas instantly spread throughout the city, and the crowds were precipitated workshop Louis.
