Walking Tour: Delacroix at the Met

ID : 6980   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic French painter Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863) was one of the greatest creative figures of the nineteenth century.  Coming of age after the fall of Napoleon, he reconnected the present to the past on his own terms.  Delacroix produced an extraordinarily vibrant body of work, setting into motion a cascade of innovations that changed the course of art.  This exhibition (September 17, 2018 through January 6, 2019) will be the first comprehensive retrospective devoted to this amazing artist ever held in North America.  The exhibition, a joint project with the Musée du Louvre, will illuminate Delacroix's restless imagination through approximately 145 paintings, drawings, and prints, many never before seen in the United States.  It will unfold chronologically, encompassing the rich variety of themes that preoccupied the artist during his more than four decades of activity, including literature, history, religion, animals, and nature.
