Every Picture Tells A Story. Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa

I’m reading a book ‘Keeping an Eye Open’ by Julian Barnes, subtitled ‘Essays on Art’. 
In the first chapter, he writes about this painting by GĂ©ricault. 
I’ve never heard of this artist, but the story surrounding this painting is fascinating. 

I’ve found a documentary on this painting on YouTube by my favourite art critic Andrew Graham Dixon. It’s a good one. He looks very young.
