Théodore Géricault, The Raft of the Medusa, 1819
Things to think about when studying:

- How does he use composition and other formal elements to heighten the drama of the work?
Seeing this post reminded me of reading History of the World in 10 1/2 chapters, by Julian Barnes. Thank you!

Tumblr has today quietly ticked over the 100 million blog mark, with those blogs containing some 44.6 billion posts… This marks significant growth over the last year, of somewhere around 50 million blogs since April of 2012, when it crossed 50 million for the first time.
