This year, an outstanding exhibition is going to be held at the Louvre, Paris, in honor of Eugene Delacroix.
Delacroix was one of the leaders of French painting and without doubt remains one of the biggest names in the history of art. This exhibition will feature elements that date back to 1963–the centenary of this death.
The Louvre has collaborated with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the city of New York to hold this exhibition that will feature approximately 180 works in honors of Delacroix’s paintings, most of which will be paintings. There will be some of the most famous paintings, prints, drawings as well as little known compositions that you would probably be seeing for the first time. When you visit the Delacroix (1798–1863) exhibition at the Louvre, you will have an opportunity to see a complex body of work that oscillates between tradition and originality.
Delacroix strove for individuality while yearning to follow in the footsteps of Venetian and Flemish masters of the 16th and 17th centuries. From this exhibition, you will get answers to the questions that were raised by Delacroix’s long, multifaceted and prolific career. You will be introduced to his engaging character of a virtuoso writer, illustrator, and painter.
From March 29 to July 23, 2018.
