Théodore Géricault  / The Raft of the Medusa

The Raft of the Medusa is an oil painting by the French romantic painter and lithographer Théodore Géricault. Completed when the artist was 27, the work has become an icon of French Romanticism. It represents a break from the calm and order of the then-prevailing Neoclassical school. The painting's influence can be seen in the works of Delacroix, Turner, Courbet, Manet and many others
