Medusa

Although the painting is principally an abstract work of art, within the composition that suggests a storm at sea, can be seen the prow of a ship, shown as a dark silhouette. The painting evokes the theme of shipwreck, and the title relates this work to Theodore Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa.
