   schema:description "Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer is currently Professor and Chair of Art History at the University of Delaware. She has published extensively on French nineteenth-century art, including essays on Gericault, Horace Vernet, Delacroix, and Cezanne, and three books: French Images from the Greek War of Independence: Art and Politics under the Restoration (1989), which was a runner up for the CINOA award; Eugene Delacroix: Prints, Politics and Satire (1991); and Cezanne and Provence: The Painter in his Culture (2003), which was a finalist for the College Art Association's Charles Rufus Morey Book Award in 2004. --Book Jacket."@en ;
   schema:description "Drawn to subjects of violence and horror, Gericault responded to the turbulent history of France as Napoleon's Empire ceded to a restored Monarchy -- perhaps its most scandalous event was the plight of the shipwrecked victims depicted in his towering masterpiece The Raft of the Medium. Gericault was committed to capturing contemporary life with imaginative verve, taking a deep interest in extreme states and the depths of the human mind, especially as revealed by the medical sciences. These concerns inspired his late, haunting portrayals of monomaniacs. Equally significant was Gericault's passion for the wild imagery of horses, which prompted some of the epoch's greatest equestrian portraits and history paintings."@en ;
   schema:description "This comprehensive monograph explores all of Gericault's best-known works, including examples from his remarkable sketchbooks, and sets his artistic originality in its dramatic social and cultural contexts."@en ;
