Following in the Steps of Delacroix in North Africa

By Jacqueline Cockburn

Perhaps the greatest French Romantic artist, Delacroix broke the boundaries of art with his exploration of colour and his approaches to subject matter. This lecture follows him to North Africa and we read his diaries in order to understand the experience for an artist in 1830. The lecture concludes by exploring other artists who followed his trail.
