Theodore Gericault


 


 

 Jean-Louis-Andre Theodore Gericault

(b Rouen, 26 Sept 1791; d Paris, 26 Jan 1824).

 French painter, draughtsman, lithographer and sculptor. He experienced the exaltation of Napoleon’s triumphs in his boyhood, reached maturity at the time of the empire’s agony and ended his career of little more than 12 working years in the troubled early period of the Restoration. When he died, he was known to the public only by the three paintings he had exhibited at the Salon in Paris, the Charging Chasseur (1812; Paris, Louvre), the Wounded Cuirassier Leaving the Field of Battle (1814; Paris, Louvre) and the Raft of the Medusa (1819; Paris, Louvre), and by a handful of lithographs.
