Eugène Ferdinand Victor Delacroix (1798-1863) 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.

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.
