Description

By Sébastien Allard and Côme Fabre with contributions by Dominique de Font-Réaulx, Michèle Hannoosh, Mehdi Korchane, and Asher Miller

Eugène Delacroix created paintings known for their dynamic color, brushwork, and movement. This in-depth retrospective, written by French and American experts, features a major career survey that examines Delacroix's engagement with the work of his predecessors, his fascination with the natural world, his interest in the Ottoman Empire, and the profound influence of his voyage to North Africa. Other essays illuminate Delacroix's relationship with his mentors, Guerin and Gros, as well as his exploration of literary, historical,and biblical themes, his writing in personal journals, and his career-defining presence at the Exposition Universelle of 1855. Presenting some 200 beautifully illustrated works, including renowned canvases such as The Women of Algiers in their Apartment, Liberty Leading the People, and Lion Hunt, as well as a generous selection of drawings and prints from international collections, this revelatory volume captures the full range of Delacroix's genius, showing how this intrepid figure changed the course of European painting.

Editorial Reviews

"This exhibition and the accompanying catalogue are touchstones for anyone interested in Romantic art and the achievements of Delacroix." 
      —Alexander Adams, AlexanderAdamsArt

"This beautiful exhibition catalogue represents the first major retrospective given to Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863) in more than half a century.... In erudite but accessible prose, the authors demonstrate how Delacroix took new approaches to every genre, from history to still life...Highly recommended." 
      —A. Luxenberg, Choice

"Here it is, everything you need to know about the ingenious French freak of painterly nature, Eugene Delacroix (1798–1863) . . . all in one beautifully illustrated book. If you're not exactly sure who Delacroix is or why he's so epically important (I would rate him as indispensable to understanding all of 19th-century painting), this is the book to read. No other museum catalogue text about this master — or many others — is so lucidly written, accessible, and fun to read." 
      —Jerry Saltz, Vulture

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful text. One of the best historical studies I have read. I expect the photos to be great and they are, but the art history is outstanding. I do not need another large, heavy art book...but this one seems too good, thorough and well written to pass up.
