De­voted to Delacroix

Where Paris - - Art & Attractions -

The Musée Na­tional Eugène-Delacroix, nestled in a coun­try-like set­ting, is pre­sent­ing a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled Mau­rice De­nis and Eugène Delacroix from the Stu­dio to the Mu­seum. The show, which fea­tures some out­stand­ing loans, cel­e­brates painters like Mau­rice De­nis whose ad­mi­ra­tion for Delacroix in­spired them to turn the artist’s last home and stu­dio into a mu­seum. It is the first ex­hi­bi­tion to an­a­lyse and show­case the power and scale of Delacroix’s in­flu­ence on these painters, among them De­nis, Pierre Bon­nard and Edouard Vuil­lard. A host of works by ma­jor painters in­clud­ing Delacroix, Cézanne, Matisse and De­nis are also on dis­play. The show also traces the his­tory of the mu­seum, which is lo­cated on a tiny place in the Saint-Ger­main-des-Prés neigh­bour­hood and has been re­cently ren­o­vated and ex­tended.
