Delacroix as Writer

The Delacroix Museum commemorates the 150th anniversary of Eugène Delacroix with a exhibition examining the writings of the French Romantic artist.

Drawing from its own collection the Musée Eugène Delacroix presents a series of journals, letters and notebooks – accompanied by drawings and photographs – that document the impressive literary capacity of the 19th-century painter.

Despite being best known for his paintings, Delacroix was also a skilled writer and ardent observer of nature and art whose personal writings were only discovered after his death.

The artist died on 13 August 1863 in the Paris building that houses the museum in his honour.

Wed-Mon 09.30-17.00. Tues closed.
