An insightful exhibition; Maurice Denis and Eugène Delacroix, From the Studio to the Museum

An insightful exhibition; Maurice Denis and Eugène Delacroix, From the Studio to the Museum

Maurice Denis did not know Eugène Delacroix, whose work inspired the Impressionists. But this notable French painter and writer, who was born several years after the death of the great master but went on to become the first president of the Société des Amis d’Eugène Delacroix, held a sincere admiration for the work of his artistic forebear.

This admiration was instrumental in turning Delacroix’s final home and studio into a museum. The current exhibition at the Musée Eugène Delacroix tells this fascinating story via handwritten letters, drawings and more. Through older artists such as Cézanne, Redon and Gauguin, Maurice Denis discovered the romantic painter whose legacy he sought to consolidate with the help of his contemporaries Vuillard, Bonnard and Bernard. The route of the exhibition continues in the hidden garden where, amidst the tranquil greenery, you can listen to a narration of this engrossing tale. In addition, the ateliers hold other surprises, such as canvases by Matisse and Gauguin.
