In partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in spring 2018, the Musée du Louvre will be hosting an exhibition dedicated to the artistic career of Eugène Delacroix.

For the first time since the 1963 exhibition celebrating the 100-year anniversary of his death, this event will pool over 180 artworks by the artist, including a large number of paintings: from the young artist’s big hits at the Salon of 1820 up to his final less known and mysterious religious and landscape compositions.

The exhibition, from March to July 23, 2018, will showcase the tensions that formed this artist, striving for individuality while driven by aspirations to follow in the footsteps of 16th and 17th-century Flemish and Venetian artists. The installations and information provided will provide insight into his long, rife, and diverse career.

Visitors will have the chance to familiarize themselves with this engaging character: infatuated by fame and devoted to his work; curious, critical, and cultivated; and a virtuoso writer, painter, and illustrator.
