Théodore Géricault (September 26, 1791 to January 26, 1824) is labeled a romantic painter. That he is a great painter, I cannot doubt. His most famous work is "The Raft of the Medusa", wherein he imagines the aftermath of a shipwreck. But I need to study on why he would be labeled a Romantic, except for an accidental chronological coincidence. Revolutionary oh yes. You might not see it in the painting below,.titled "The White Cat." I have a link to another cat he did dated to 1821 It is of a cat carcass, and it is not hard to look at. (Some of Gericault's stuff IS).
The cat painting above I would label a bridge between Goya and Cezanne.
