Home>Exhibitions & Events>Exhibitions>Fantin-Latour, Manet, Baudelaire: the Hommage à Delacroix

It was 1863: the year Manet sparked a scandal with his Déjeuner sur l’herbe, and the year of Delacroix’s death. Shocked by the lack of official recognition, for the next Salon, Fantin-Latour created his Hommage à Delacroix.

This seminal painting brought together a generation of innovative artists and critics, such as Baudelaire, around a portrait of the dead master.

The exhibition traces the journey of the painting and tells the story of the artistic fraternity through other portraits of the artists shown in the painting and the works tying them to Delacroix’s legacy.

Organized by:

Christophe Leribault, director of the Musée Eugène Delacroix and curator at the Prints and Drawings Department at the Musée du Louvre.
