Art Tidbits:

Jean-Louis André Théodore Géricault was an influential French painter and lithographer, and
even though he died at a young age, he was still considered a pioneer of the Romantic movement. He is well known for his painting, The Raft of the Medusa, which is on display at the Louvre.
The painting is 16 feet high by 23 feet wide
so the young painter made numerous detailed sketches, as depicted above, before deciding
on the final composition.
