The signing of Carpeaux having been added after the completion of the painting, it is not clear what is the author. The table is considered since 1938 as a copy of Géricault Carpeaux. Recent reviews of the work question this assignment, but can not be considered a study of the hand of Géricault. The version considered original is in the Museum of Stockholm. The picture of the Petit Palais gives details of the head to the right. Carpeaux admired the work of the Romantic painter and in particular Raft of the Medusa (1819, Louvre), some details have been prepared by anatomical studies of fragments of corpses.

Beyond that, the acrylic glass print makes a distinct alternative option to dibond or canvas fine art prints. The artwork is being printed with modern UV direct printing technology.
