Géricault

Seven volumes, of which one is devoted to the Radeau de la Méduse and the Monomaniacs, accompanied by a booklet of annexes, were necessary to catalogue, analyze and comment the complete works of Théodore GÉRICAULT (1791-1824). Because of his fascination with dramatic events and his personal independence from academic art, the painter is considered a forerunner of Romanticism. However, he is, above all else, a painter of reality who endeavors to convey the social and political atmosphere of his time as well as the tragic human condition.
