Year 6 French : The Raft of The Medusa

Year 6 French : The Raft of The Medusa

In French we have been studying the famous 19th century painting “Le Radeau de la Méduse” by Théodore Géricault. This dramatic painting depicts the survivors of a shipwreck on a raft and we have been analysing the artist’s use of composition. The children made a sketch of it and then had a lot of fun reenacting the scene to explore the effects of the composition and the emotions portrayed.
