Delacroix Exhibition

Published September 14, 2018

French painter Eugène Delacroix was one of the greatest creative figures of the nineteenth century. Delacroix produced an extraordinarily vibrant body of work, setting into motion a cascade of innovations that changed the course of art. This exhibition will be the first comprehensive retrospective devoted to this amazing artist ever held in North America.

The exhibition, a joint project with the Musée du Louvre, will illuminate Delacroix's restless imagination through more than 150 paintings, drawings, prints, and manuscripts-many never before seen in the United States. It will unfold chronologically, encompassing the rich variety of themes that preoccupied the artist during his more than four decades of activity, including literature, history, religion, animals, and nature. 

The exhibition runs from 9/17/2018 - 1/6/2019 and is being held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave, NY, New York, 10028.
