Jean-Louis André Théodore Géricault French pronunciation: ​[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.

Théodore Géricault

Although he died young, he was one of the pioneers of the Romantic movement. Early life[edit] Success[edit] Géricault's first major work, The Charging Chasseur, exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1812, revealed the influence of the style of Rubens and an interest in the depiction of contemporary subject matter. A trip to Florence, Rome, and Naples (1816–17), prompted in part by the desire to flee from a romantic entanglement with his aunt,[5] ignited a fascination with Michelangelo. The Raft of the Medusa[edit] The painting ignited political controversy when first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1819; it then traveled to England in 1820, accompanied by Géricault himself, where it received much praise.

Painting gallery. The art of Terje Adler Mørk. Botticelli. Early life[edit] By 1470, Botticelli had his own workshop.


Even at this early date, his work was characterized by a conception of the figure as if seen in low relief, drawn with clear contours, and minimizing strong contrasts of light and shadow which would indicate fully modeled forms. Maturity[edit] In these works, the influence of Gothic realism is tempered by Botticelli's study of the antique. But if the painterly means may be understood, the subjects themselves remain fascinating for their ambiguity. "Like much of Florence, Botticelli had come under the sway of Savonarola and his art had transformed from the decorative to the deeply devout - The Mystical Nativity (c. 1500-1501) [for example] bears all the signs of this change"[5] In the mid-1480s, Botticelli worked on a major fresco cycle with Perugino, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Filippino Lippi, for Lorenzo the Magnificent's villa near Volterra; in addition he painted many frescoes in Florentine churches.

History[edit] Some of the earliest surviving painted portraits of people, who were not kings or emperors, are the funeral portraits that survived in the dry climate of Egypt's Fayum district.


These are almost the only paintings from the classical world that have survived, apart from frescos, though many sculptures survive, and portraits on coins. They were represented during several stages of their lives. The faces of gods were also depicted. To date, no portraits of women have been found. One of the best-known portraits in the Western world is Leonardo da Vinci's painting titled Mona Lisa, which is a painting of Lisa del Giocondo.
