Eugène Delacroix (1789–1863), a dominant figure in 19th-century French art, was a complex and contradictory painter whose legacy is deep and enduring. Delacroix’s works laid crucial groundwork for immediate successors including Cézanne, Degas, Manet, Monet and Renoir. Later admirers, including Seurat, Gauguin, Moreau, Redon, Van Gogh and Matisse renewed the obsession with his work.
