Tour of Delacroix at the Met

On Wednesday, October 24, the V&AAF group was treated to an informative tour of the Delacroix exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, led by Dr Page Knox.

This is a past event.

The group learned about the life and work of French painter Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863), one of the greatest painters of the nineteenth century whose powerful and emotive style inspired generations of artists, from the Impressionists to the abstract expressionists.

This is the first comprehensive retrospective in North America devoted to this remarkable artist. A joint project with the Musée du Louvre, the exhibition illuminates Delacroix’s restless imagination though more than 150 paintings, drawings, print, and manuscripts – many never before seen in the United States.
