DELACROIX by Rene Huyghe


Email this review


It is said that this 19th century romantic is beginning to come back in vogue, and 1963 marked the centennial of Delacroix' death. He is well commemorated here in the extensive text of Rene Huyghe, the eminent art historian and member of the French Academy. A disquieting, dramatic character, a superb colorist, Delacroix was an influential figure in the artistically and intellectually affluent period in which he lived, and the pictorial section here includes 405 black and white illustrations, 56 in color.
