Milestone 2

The artworks I have chosen are from the Rococo period from which I chose the “Oath of Horatii” whose artist was known as the Jacques-Louis David. The second artwork from the contemporary period is the “Death Squad,” and the artist who did this artwork was known as John Keane in the year 1991. The theme which was brought out in the two arts of work is actually the patriotic theme, where the heroic historical period was portrayed in the two periods. “Oath of Horatii” is the painting that was established in the year 1784, five years before the occurrence of Revolution in France. During this period, people in France were quite restless combining their efforts to fight for their democracy by overthrowing the monarchy.

“Oath of Horatii” is a work of art by Jacques-Louis David, and was established in the year 1784 (Mayer, 2017) this is a Rococo period art currently located in Louvre, Paris. “Death Squad,” is a work of art done by John Keane in the year 1991 and is currently located in the Imperial War Museums in London

Even though the Rococo art and the contemporary art took place in different periods, both of them shared a common idea of enlightenment which would pave a path for the two works of art.

Enlightenment and Neoclassicism were different but they both intertwined whereby Neoclassicism manifested cultural ideals whereas the enlightenment manifested broader political and philosophical movement.
