Study of the Model Joseph

Théodore Géricault painted this portrait as a study for his most famous painting, The Raft of the Medusa. The painter captured his model with great sympathy and spontaneity; his watery eyes are not fixed on anything external to the canvas but seem to express an inner torment. 

The model is Joseph, whose full name has not come down to us. Born in Santo Domingo (now Haiti), he emigrated to France, where he found a job as an acrobat before being recruited by Géricault as a model.

Théodore Géricault

A fiery and tormented personality, Théodore Géricault (1791–1824) is, along with Eugène Delacroix, the incarnation of the French romantic painter. He is also the author of one of the most famous works of the 19th century: The Raft of the Medusa, which revolutionized historical painting under the Restoration. Fascinated by morbid themes, the painter was also a great lover of horses, which he represented in many works.
