Gericault: Watercolours, Drawings and Prints from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris by Jane Munro



Art institution: École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France. Friends and Co-workers: Eugene Delacroix. Géricault's first major work, The Charging Chasseur, exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1812, revealed the influence of the style of Rubens and an interest in the depiction of contemporary subject matter. This youthful success, ambitious and monumental, was followed by a change in direction: for the next several years Géricault produced a series of small studies of horses and cavalrymen. He exhibited Wounded Cuirassier at the Salon in 1814, a work more labored and less well received. Géricault in a fit of disappointment entered the army and served for a time in the garrison of Versailles.

Attended by the creators of Impressionism, Cubism, and Pointillism, the École Des Beaux-arts is a central piece of European art history. It was, however, conservative in its methods and output. It drew primarily from the classical Greek and Roman arts. Progression in the academy was dependent on following a rigorous course structure. As new, more radical and experimental forms of art emerged in the 19th century, such as Impressionism and Expressionism, the École was increasingly seen as too rigid in its methods. Claude Monet famously refused to attend due to this, though other Impressionists did and went on to join him making a name for themselves.
