Filter list according to painting color palette:
 
Jean-Louis Andre Theodore Gericault, better known as Theodore Gericaut was born in Rouen, France in 1791 and died in 1824. He was an extremely influential artist, a pioneer of the Romantic movement. His most famous work is "The Raft of Medusa." Two of Gericault's classical teachers included Vernet and Guerin, both recognized his talent and his rebellious temperament as an artist. In 1810, at age 19 he went to study at the Louvre where he tediously copied master paintings. Two years later he began exhibiting at the Paris Salon; his work showed the influence of masters like Rubens, but combined with more modern subject matter. After the success of his first painting, "The Charging Chasseur," he painted several studies of horses and their riders. His most ambitious work was "The Raft of the Medusa (1818)" as mentioned earlier. This painting portrayed the result of the French shipwreck, Meduse. The wreck was quite scandalous as the captain left his crew members to die at sea.
