Building the collection The collection In Picasso’s studio, paper was employed in various ways. The Ship of Fools, or the Satire of the Debauched Revelers. Paintings Dutch painting Author(s): Service internet A mysterious painting Born into a family of painters at 's Hertogenbosch, Jheronymous Bosch must have learned his trade in the family studio. Little is known about him, and our knowledge of his development is based on the study of his paintings. He initiated a satirical and fantastical genre of painting peopled with monsters and imaginary figures, and steeped in nordic proverbs that would later inspire painters such as Bruegel the Elder.

The painting in the Louvre, the only work in France clearly signed by the painter, is a magnificent example of his work. An unusual journey A group of ten people are gathered in a boat. Souls adrift It has been suggested that this unusual scene is an interpretation of The Ship of Fools, an allegory by the humanist Sebastian Brant, published in Basel in 1494. A Closer Look.

July 28: Liberty Leading the People. The Paris uprising of July 27, 28, and 29, 1830, known as the Trois Glorieuses ("Three Glorious Days"), was initiated by the liberal republicans for violation of the Constitution by the Second Restoration government. Charles X, the last Bourbon king of France, was overthrown and replaced by Louis Philippe, Duke of Orléans. Delacroix, who witnessed the uprising, perceived it as a modern subject for a painting; the resulting work reflects the same romantic fervor he had applied to Massacre at Chios, a painting inspired by the Greek war of independence.

A patriotic act Delacroix's imagination was fired by all manner of things—the natural world, a Gothic ribbed vault, a feline, a journey, a human passion... or an event that changed the course of history and reversed artistic trends. He translated his deeply felt emotions into painting, constantly renewing his style. The time had come to fulfill his own patriotic duty.

A Parisian revolution A modern subject Bibliography. The Raft of the Medusa. The Raft of the Medusa—a major work in French 19th-century painting—is generally regarded as an icon of Romanticism. It depicts an event whose human and political aspects greatly interested Géricault: the wreck of a French frigate off the coast of Senegal in 1816, with over 150 soldiers on board. The painter researched the story in detail and made numerous sketches before deciding on his definitive composition, which illustrates the hope of rescue. A contemporary event Géricault drew his inspiration from the account of two survivors of the Medusa—a French Royal Navy frigate that set sail in 1816 to colonize Senegal. It was captained by an officer of the Ancien Régime who had not sailed for over twenty years and who ran the ship aground on a sandbank. Due to the shortage of lifeboats, those who were left behind had to build a raft for 150 souls—a construction that drifted away on a bloody 13-day odyssey that was to save only 10 lives.
