autour de Géricault, robe d'Élise


acrylic paint on linen in oak frame
175 x 135 x 13 cm
1996-2000

It is my strong belief that Géricault expressed the character of the portrayed children by how he painted their clothes. This is the dress of Élise and it looks much like the harnesses he painted. Did he want her to look rigid, protective maybe? Press '<Prev' to see Alfred's coat.
