This sketch was created by Van Dyck when he saw Titian’s work on his trip to Genoa. Its an interesting insight into how artists learned from one another and foreshadows the heavy Titian influence that shows up in Van Dyck’s finished pieces from this point on.

Géricault kept a private collection of his own erotic drawings. These works tend to charged with violence, athleticism, energy and frustration. Interestingly, they coincided with a difficult time in the artist’s life; a forbidden and intense love affair he had with Alexandrine-Modeste Caruel, his uncle’s wife who was Géricault’s senior by six years. The scandal came to a head in 1818 when Caruel gave birth to the artist’s son.
