Le Voeu de Louis XIII

The Vow of Louis XIII was painted in 1824 by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres while he was in Florence. Commissioned by the Ministry of the Interior in 1820 for the town of Montauban, the painting depicts the vow of Louis XIII. The work was a great success at the Salon of 1824, and later critics made Ingres the principal representative of the classical school opposed to Romanticism, represented at the Salon by Delacroix's Massacres of Scio. It marked Ingres's return to the Parisian art scene after years of expatriation to Rome, his devotion to Raphael, who influenced his work, and the abandonment of his stylistic audacity, considered outrageous and bizarre by the critics, for which he was awarded the Légion d'honneur by King Charles X. The painting hangs in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption in Montauban. The painting was interpreted with a burin by the Italian engraver Luigi Calamatta, a close friend of Ingres. It took twelve years to complete the plate, of which the Bibliothèque nationale de France's Department of Prints and Photography holds the state prints. The quality of the interpretation was acclaimed by the critics and earned Calamatta the star of the Légion d'Honneur. In 1826, Charles X commissioned a copy from Julie Duvidal de Montferrier for the town of Lons-le-Saunier. This painting, which differs from the original in that its composition has been adapted to a horizontal format, was found in an attic in the town's former Hôtel-Dieu in 2015.
