Eugene Delacroix



 


 
Eugene Delacroix

(b Charenton-Saint-Maurice, nr Paris, 26 April 1798; d Paris, 13 Aug 1863).

French painter, draughtsman and lithographer. He was one of the greatest painters of the first half of the 19th century, the last history painter in Europe and the embodiment of ROMANTICISM in the visual arts. At the heart of Delacroix’s career is the paradox between the revolutionary and the conventional: as the arch-enemy of JEAN-AUGUSTE-DOMINIQUE INGRES and as the leading figure of the French Romantic movement, he was celebrated for undermining the tradition of painting established by JACQUES-LOUIS DAVID, yet he nevertheless enjoyed official patronage from the beginning of the Restoration (1814–30) until the Second Empire (1852–70).
