Jean-Louis Andre Theodore Gericault was a French painter born 1791 in Rouen, France and died 1824 in Paris, France. Gericault was associated with the Romanticism movement and was perhaps the most influential artist of his time. Géricault was greatly influenced by the work of Michelangelo and other Italian Renaissance painters, as well as that of the Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens.

Early in his career, Géricault's paintings began to exhibit qualities that set him apart from such neoclassical French painters as Jacques-Louis David. Géricault soon became the acknowledged leader of the French romantics.
