Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix (26 April 1798 – 13 August 1863) was a French Romantic artist
regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school.
Delacroix's use of expressive brushstrokes and his study of the optical effects of colour profoundly
shaped the work of the Impressionists, while his passion for the exotic inspired the artists of the Symbolist movement.
A fine lithographer, Delacroix illustrated various works of William Shakespeare,
the Scottish writer Walter Scott and the German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
