This two-volume collection of previously unpublished texts by thirty or so authors analyzes and interprets the work of Géricault, thus freeing him from the myth that combines the deep-rooted clichés of popular romanticism and the classical idealism of scholarly tradition, to reconsider his oeuvre and exalt its potentialities. Texts by English-speaking authors are published in English, the other texts are published in French.
