Overall visit

In partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in the spring of 2018, the Musée du Louvre will present an exhibition retracing the entire artistic career of Eugène Delacroix. Unpublished in Paris since the exhibition of the centenary of his death in 1963, this event will bring together more than 180 masterpieces, of which a large majority of paintings: great brilliance which made the celebrity of the young artist at the Salons of the 1820s , until the last religious or landscape compositions, little known and mysterious.

Delacroix is not my favorite artist but this exhibit was really comprehensive with a wide range of different works and styles I didn't expect. It's definitely a luck to see such a huge number of art pieces from the famous painter gathered at a time in one place. At least for that reason, the show is one of the must sees in Paris this spring,

A n'en pas douter c'est l'exposition phare de ce printemps!Pour moi Delacroix se résumait à "la liberté guidant le peuple" que nenni! Quelle ne fut pas ma surprise en découvrant la diversité de sa peinture: aussi bien des huiles gigantesques des aquarelles ses dessins, ou l'on sent la maîtrise absolue de ses moyens picturaux! Les thèmes sont aussi variés que les natures mortes, les animaux, les scènes bibliques, la mythologie. on sent ça et là l'inspiration tirée de Rembrandt, Rubens......;allez y c'est éblouissant!
