The Musée National Eugène-Delacroix is holding an unprecedented exhibition on the mural paintings that Delacroix completed in 1861 for the Chapelle des Saints-Anges in the church of Saint-Sulpice.
Thanks to exceptional loans from French and foreign museums, the exhibition will bring together works by artists who inspired Delacroix, such as Raphael, Titian, Rubens, Le Lorrain, and Solimena, and the principal studies and sketches the artist produced while elaborating his three chapel paintings. There will also be works by 19th- and 20th-century artists including Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, William Strang, Jacques Lipschitz, René Iché, Charles Camoin, Jean Bazaine, and Marc Chagall, who drew inspiration from Delacroix’s art in their own struggles for modernity.
Dominique de Font-Réaulx, director of the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix, and Marie Monfort, DRAC Île-de-France.
