Catalogue Note

The intensely energetic and seemingly spontaneous nature of this sheet of studies is highly characteristic of Géricault's graphic style in the medium of pencil.

The various equestrian compositions found within the present work correspond closely, both in technique and subject matter, to a number of sheets found in the so called "Chicago Album", in particular folios 34 to 61, the traditional dating of which is circa 1813-14.
