Eugene Delacroix

Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863) French Romantic painter. He was celebrated for the use of expressive color that influenced later painters, notably the Impressionists.

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.
