Delacroix at the National Gallery

Delacroix and the Rise of Modern Art at the National Gallery.

Group tours proposed on specific dates (21st April and 5th May 2016). Possibility also to book a private tour for a date of your choice.

Given that Delacroix is not immediately associated with modern art, this exhibition surprises from the outset by showing his crucial role in its development. This is especially true for the Impressionists, who drew from his breakthrough exploration of colour and his famous flochetage.

Delacroix is also known for new and exotic subjects: Moroccan weddings, lion hunts. And his paintings hang beside little-known, intriguing works by Degas, Gauguin, Cezanne, and others that are full of unexpected associations.
