Caught by the Tide

Formerly believed to be by Géricault, this work is now considered to be by an imitator of Couture. It may have been inspired by Couture's 'Marie Protectrice dans le Danger (Les Naufragés)' in the Chapel of the Virgin in St-Eustace, Paris, which was probably painted between 1851 and 1854.
