Keeping the faith

What you are searching for may be just beyond the next wave.

Notwithstanding the huge crowds in front of the Mona Lisa, no one stood in front of the The Raft of the Medusa which portrays the moment when, after 13 days adrift on the raft, the remaining 15 survivors view a ship approaching from a distance. The painting is on a monumental scale of 193 × 282 in, so that most of the figures rendered are life-sized and those in the foreground almost twice life-size.

Detail from the lower left corner of the canvas showing two dying figures. The men in the middle have just viewed a rescue ship; one points it out to another.

I found this fascinating showing the range of emotions on such a small raft.
