DELACROIX. THE LATE WORK

EUGENE DELACROIX (1798-1863)

Oprindelig pris kr. 698,00

Vor pris KR.  199,00

Bogen behandler perioden 1850 til hans død i 1863. Denne periode er præget af værker der absolut ikke bærer præg af en ældre mand, men derimod af fantastiske billeder af vilde dyr og prægtige jagtscener fulde af liv og vitaliet. Han malede ligeledes en række religiøse billeder hvor han viderefører arven fra de gamle mestre samt fornyer genren og bibringer liv og dramatik til værkerne. Bl.a. de berømte vægmalerier i St. Sulpice kirken i Paris (kendt fra da Vinci Mysteriet). Delacroix blev allerede i sin samtid betragtet som den førende kunstner i den franske romantik.

Hans farveteorier fik væsentlig betydning for bl.a. Cèzanne, Renoir og van Gogh.

Alle elskere af Delacroixs kunst bør besøge hans museum i 6 Rue de Furstenberg, ved den charmerende Place Furstenberg på venstre bred i Paris.

1998 marks the bicentennial of the birth of the great French romantic painter Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863). A pivotal figure in the history of 19th-century art, Delacroix stands both at the culmination of the great painterly tradition of Titian, Veronese, Rubens and Rembrandt and at the beginning of something quite new and modern, as witnessed by the reverence given to him by such artists as Renoir, Cezanne, Picasso and Matisse, who were profoundly influenced by his work. Accompanying an international exhibition that begins in Paris and travels to Philadelphia Museum of Art in September 1998, this book presents subjects ranging from saints and warriors to mythical goddesses, from Arab hunting scenes and tigers to sumptuous bouquets of flowers.

Delacroix's late work reveals a deepening spiritual intensity that has more to do with aesthetic reflection and recollection than with the expansive narrative that characterized his grand public commissions. Focusing on the artist's last works allows further insight into this most remarkable and protean figure in the history of art.
