Massacre at Chios
Eugene Delacroix

Eugène Ferdinand Victor Delacroix (1798-1863) was a French Romantic painter (For some the most important of the French Romantic painters). Delacroix was celebrated for the use of expressive color that influenced later painters, notably the Impressionists. As a lithographer, he illustrated works of Shakespeare, Walter Scott and Goethe.

Some of his great works include: The Barque of Dante, 1822, Massacre at Chios, 1824, The Death of Sardanapalus, 1827, Liberty Leading the People (28th July 1830), 1830, The Women of Algiers, 1834, The Entry of the Crusaders into Constantinople, 1840, Christ on the Lake of Gennesaret, 1854, and Arabs Skirmishing in the Mountains, 1863.

The last of the great Renaissance artists, Delacroix comes of a lineage whose founder is Michelangelo and whose prodigal son is Rubens. [1]

The veritable tradition in great things is not to repeat what others have done, but to rediscover the spirit that created these great things - and creates utterly different things in different times. Paul Valéry.

Traveling in North Africa and Spain he was influenced to produce paintings that are exuberant and lush.
