Delacroix, Eugene Biography

Eugene Delacroix is numbered among the greatest and most influential of French painters. He is most often classified as an artist of the Romantic school. His remarkable use of color was later to influence impressionist painters and even modern artists such as Pablo Picasso.

In 1815 he became the pupil of the French painter Pierre-Narcisse Guerin and began a career that would produce more than 850 oil paintings and great numbers of drawings, murals, and other works. In 1822 Eugene Delacroix submitted his first oil painting to the important Paris Salon exhibition: Dante and Virgil in Hell. A technique used in this work, many unblended colors forming what at a distance looks like a unified whole, would later be used by the Impressionists.

The French revolution of 1830 inspired the famous Liberty Guiding the People, which was the last of Delacroix's oil paintings that truly embodied the romantic ideal. He found new inspiration on a trip to Morocco in 1832. The ancient, proud, and exotic culture moved him to write "I am quite overwhelmed by what I have seen."

Eugene Delacroix died on Aug. 13, 1863, in Paris. His apartment there was made into a museum in his memory.
