Delacroix’s Influence. The Rise of Modern Art from Cézanne to Van Gogh - SOLD OUT
Talk | The National Gallery
Monday 21 March 2016 - 14:30 until 15:30
This introductory talk examines Delacroix’ s major role in transforming French painting in the 19th century. Following his death in 1863, he was revered in Paris as the last painter of the Grand Style, but also as one of Europe’s first modern masters. In addition to works by Delacroix, the exhibition will feature paintings by the younger generation he inspired, including Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Renoir. Themes explored include Orientalism, colour theory, aestheticism, and the artist’s own unpublished ‘Dictionary of Art’.
Please note exhibition tickets are not included.
