Mutiny: Works by Géricault

Mutiny: Works by Géricault presents some 40 oil paintings and works on paper by the short-lived but highly influential Romantic artist, best known today for his monumental, harrowing depiction of shipwreck survivors, The Raft of the Medusa. The show sheds light on his social and political engagement, reflected in his choice of thought-provoking and emotionally unsettling subject matter — wounded soldiers, the urban poor, animals in distress. This vivid empathy and unflinching focus on contemporary realities helped pave the way for modern art.
