About

 

Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863)

Delacroix epitomized the frenzied, Dionysian side of the Romantic movement and many of his paintings show scenes of indescribable carnage and ferocity. Despite his belief that crude animal vigor was preferable to an over-strained civilization, he had an unshakable faith in the ultimate victory of the human spirit. It was this faith that made him a great religious painter, perhaps the greatest of the 19th century.
