Theodore Gericault Fort
Théodore Géricault Fort was born in 1810 in France and was the son of French court painter Jean-Antoine-Simeon Fort (1793-1861). The younger Fort debuted at the Paris Salon in 1842. His specialty was equestrian paintings depicting action-packed military scenes or more pastoral farm subjects.
