The composition is inspired by a group of ancient sculptures, the most famous version is the Uffizi in Florence.

Apollo, right, and Diane, left, arrows slay their twelve children of Niobe; The latter, in the center, trying to protect one of his daughters. The episode is recounted, among others, in the "Metamorphoses" of Ovid (Niobe, VI, 146-312).

The "Pompeian house" Prince Napoleon (1822-1891), built by architect Alfred Normand, reproduced in every detail a Roman house. It was destroyed in 1891. It is still well known thanks to the many photographs that were made by Richebourg, Laplanche, Godfrey or Bingham. Of the twelve compositions painted by Cornu for the atrium, only two are known paintings conserved at the Musée Carnavalet (see P.2781); they were on either side of the door leading to the library.
