Both artists were affected by the Revolution and went on to address social issues in their paintings. Géricualt is best known for his painting Raft of the Medusa, which was a painting of a contemporary event on a grand, historical scale. He also painted the insane and mad at a French asylum. Delacroix was interested in the exotic and dramatic. His paintings of hunts, as well as of exotic interiors and figures shows his interest in non-European cultures. Delacroix is considered the great colorist of the century, and Van Gogh will consider him as his greatest influence. The French romantics often use an “X” shape for their composition.
