Géricault

gericaultI have painted a father holding the body of his son.
I have painted a dead horse.
I have painted a horse frightened by lightning.
I have painted a man suffering from
delusions of military command.
I have painted Lord Byron.
I have painted the slave trade.
I have painted a soldier berated by a priest.
I have painted a kleptomaniac.
I have painted a woman driven mad by envy.
I have painted an execution in London.
I have painted a woman addicted to gambling.
I have painted a child snatcher.
I have painted the insane.
