Paris, 1818. A female Robinson Crusoe, madame Jeupardieu, visits the young painter Theodore Gericault in his Montmartre studio. She has a myriad of personal stories to tell, first and foremost being her experience amidst the wreck of the naval frigate Meduse, which set sail in June 1816 for the purpose of establishing an African colony when it struck the Banc d’Arguin and sank, causing a major political scandal. From the astonishing scenes that took place on the raft carrying the few survivors, Gericault will draw inspiration for the painting set to grant him everlasting fame. In The Raft of the Medusa, he will incorporate the odyssey of all humankind and lay the foundations for the Romantic movement. Yet how can one make art out of destruction? What lies beyond the painted canvas? How can the narrative of a woman’s exotic wanderings be of help? And how can one go on living after fate has delivered its cruel blow? A novel set in post-Napoleonic France that sheds light on the contradictions inherent to the ‘enlightened West’, likening the Age of Enlightenment to the colonization of the modern world and raising once more the fascinating issue of human adventurousness
