Théodore Géricault (1791 – 1824) was a profoundly influential French artist, painter and lithographer. Although he died young, he became one of the pioneers of the Romantic movement. Hi work is representative of the spirit of the Romantic era as a whole, and they bear within them the seed of the Realistic movement that was to follow. Such a combination made him extremely influential upon the generation of artists that succeeded him, most notably upon Delacroix.

The series of lithographs he undertook on military subjects, as well as the ones based on his impressions of England and urban poverty, are considered some of the earliest masterworks in that medium.

Géricault had a personal predilection for drama, expressive force and realism. His preferred subjects were horses, military and historical events. Many of his sketches in pencil or ink for his paintings survive today, as well as other study drawings.
