Justice and Divine Vengeance Pursuing Crime[1] is a painting by French artist Pierre Paul Prud'hon.

The young Théodore Géricault had painted copies of work by Pierre Paul Prud'hon, whose "thunderously tragic pictures" include his masterpiece, Justice and Divine Vengeance Pursuing Crime[2], where oppressive darkness and the compositional base of a naked, sprawled corpse obviously anticipate Géricault's painting The Raft of the Medusa.
