A Sheet of Studies: A Winged Demon Wrestling Two Snakes and Two Foreshortened Studies of Figures (recto); Study of a Young Man Running with a Bull (verso)
Géricault’s attraction to baroque artists is apparent in this sketchbook page. While the anatomy is exaggerated and the foreshortening unconvincing, the sheet does show the artist’s mastery of movement and his skill at using color and light, rather than line, to create form.
