The Eugene Delacroix Museum is located in the apartment and studio where he lived in 1857. He wanted to be closer to St. Sulpice where he had been given a commission in 1847 After his death, his friends restored the apartment as a museum and it became an affiliate of the Louvre in 2004. The museum features a series of paintings, pastels, drawings, and prints as well as many letters and mementos. If you are in Art 208 or Art Appreciation (Art 4) you will be learning about this important artist who was a leader of the Romantic style in the 19th century. His expressive brushstrokes and his attention to light had a huge influence on the Impressionists who followed him.
