Les Quatre Élements (Allegory of the Four Elements) [1] is a oil on canvas by Belgian painter Louis Finson, as of 2010 in a private collection. The work is reminiscent of the anatomical studies Truncated Limbs, Anatomical Pieces and Severed Heads by Géricault. It also has a passing resemblance to Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time by Agnolo Bronzino.
