Géricault was a highly influential French painter, draughtsman and lithographer. Upheld as one of the pivotal figures in the Romantic movement, his accurate and powerful representations of the human form are distinctive features of his work (Romanticism is characterised by strong emotion, imagination, freedom, drama and rebellion against social conventions). He trained in the traditions of English sporting art under Carle Vernet and classical figure composition under Pierre-Narcisse Guérin, a strict Classicist.
