Géricault’s use of chiaroscuro technique makes the painting appear as bathed in a ghostly light, creating a haunting and somber atmosphere. The figures on the raft are depicted in a highly realistic manner, with the artist having carefully studied cadavers to accurately portray the ravages of starvation, dehydration, and despair on the human body. The Raft of the Medusa is a powerful painting that speaks to the human condition and our capacity for resilience in the face of adversity. It has been praised for its realism, its technical mastery, and its ability to evoke empathy and emotion in viewers. The painting has been a fixture at Paris since 1824 and continues to be regarded as one of the most significant works of art in history.
