Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) was a leading French Romantic painter whose passionate work with color and expressive brushstrokes played a major role in influencing the forthcoming Impressionist movement. He often used Greek and Roman romantic themes in his paintings. He is more well known for his use of contemporary struggles such as the Greeks and Turks conflict as depicted in Massacre at Chios, and Greek independence as shown in Greece Expiring on the Ruins of Missolonghi. “Liberty Leading the People” is his most recognizable painting and it shows the citizens of Paris taking up arms in their independence battle against the French government. Our SegPlayPC collection of Delacroix’s art includes these works and many others including Women of Algiers, Arab Saddling His Horse, Aspasia, The Natchez, and Death of Sardanapalus.
