Theodore Gericault

16 05 2015

Jean-Louis André Théodore Géricault (French: [ʒɑ̃ lwi ɑ̃dʁe teodoʁ ʒeʁiko]; 26 September 1791 – 26 January 1824) was an influential French painter and lithographer, known for The Raft of the Medusa and other paintings. Although he died young, he was one of the pioneers of the Romantic movement.

Of all the paintings in the Louvre, the most dramatic might be The Raft of the Medusa. It is large. The men on the raft are almost falling off the wall onto the floor in front of you.
