Happy birthday to Jean-Louis-André-Théodore Géricault (1791–1824). From an early age, Géricault was obsessed with horses. He spent countless hours drawing and studying them at local stables, and horses feature prominently in many of his artworks. In honor of his birthday, here’s one of his equine lithographs from our collection.”La fiancée d’Abydos,” 1823, by Jean-Louis-André-Théodore Gériauclt
