Charles Baudelaire (1821 - 1867) was a controversial French poet and critic, called "the father of modern criticism". He wrote Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil).

Baudelaire was a strong supporter of the Romantic painter Eugene Delacroix; he called him "a poet in painting".

"Romanticism is precisely situated neither in choice of subject nor in exact truth, but in a way of feeling."
