  • Boxers, 1818
    Théodore Gericault (French, 1791–1824)
    Lithograph; Sheet: 15 3/16 x 17 11/16 in. (38.5 x 45 cm); plate: 9 x 16 3/8 in. (22.8 x 41.6 cm)
    Rogers Fund, 1922 (22.63.28)

    One of the earliest painters to practice the technique of lithography, Gericault met the challenge with characteristic vigor. While appealing to the popularity of sporting prints (particularly among the British), he displayed his skill in drawing muscular figures and (parenthetically) pictured a black-and-white theme in a medium perfectly suited for it.
