Delacroix was born in 1898 to an upper-middle class family in Charenton-Saint-Maurice, outside of Paris, France. He attended school at the Lycée Impérial and became an assistant to Pierre Narcisse Guérin, where he continued to improve his artistic skills and abilities. Eugene Delacroix is widely heralded as helping to usher in the age of the Romantic style of painting in Europe during the 19th Century. He went against the popular Neoclassical style to incorporate a less restrained style of painting which was much more dependent upon the use of saturated colors. Though he did not follow many of the Neoclassical ideas of painting, the subjects of oil paintings of Eugene Delacroix were often scenes of historical importance for which he was commissioned. Through out his life, Eugene Delacroix did allow his style to shift and occasionally did paint in the style of Classicism that he disliked at other points in his career. As a whole, the paintings of Eugene Delacroix tended to embody his own personal style due to the simple fact that did not have a set of contemporaries practicing the same style of painting as he was trying to develop, unlike the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. Occasionally, Eugene Delacroix artwork is looked upon as being an early example of the avant garde. The works of Eugene Delacroix were displayed at the Salon in Paris which gained him the exposure needed to continue obtaining commissions while raising himself in the eyes of the public to a respected figure in the arts. Despite his lack of similar contemporaries, Eugene Delacroix paintings would come to be a great influence upon later generations of painters, and even painters belonging to other movements during his own time. For example, the Symbolists were influenced by his treatment of subject matter and the Impressionists also found inspiration in Eugene Delacroix oil paintings due to his belief that “gray is the enemy of all paintings” and attempted to limit, if not eradicate, the use of all neutral earth tones in painting. Modern art would also find many similarities with the earlier qualities of Eugene Delacroix’s paintings. Some of the most famous paintings by Eugene Delacroix are titled: Chois and Missolonghi, Death of Sardanapalus, The Barque of Dante (which was his first painting to be displayed at the Salon in Paris), Study for the Lion Hunt, Sultan of Morocco, The Women of Algiers in Their Apartment, Greece Expiring, and The Battle of Dante. The works of Delacroix have not been forgotten as time as passed. One of his most popular paintings in France, titled Liberty Leading the People of 1831 has become a symbol which appears on postage stamps in France. In 1862 he furthered his historical reputation by being a participating member of the creation of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Though he died soon after this accomplishment (in Paris in August of 1863), it is obvious that the importance of the murals and oil paintings of Eugene Delacroix will continue to be appreciated with great respect, particularly in his home country of France.
