Maurice Denis and Eugène Delacroix
From Studio to Museum
The Musée National Eugène-Delacroix is holding a major exhibition, featuring some outstanding loans, to celebrate the painters such as Maurice Denis whose admiration for Delacroix (1798–1863) inspired them to turn the artist’s last home and studio into a museum. The exhibition “Maurice Denis and Eugène Delacroix: from Studio to Museum” traces the history of a museum that now receives a wide range of visitors.

An emblematic adjunct in paintings imitating reality or seeking to provide different points of view, it is also the indispensable accessory for the painter engaged in a self-portrait.
