About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Companion to Delacroix serves as an introduction to one of the most important and most complex artists of the nineteenth century. Providing an overview of his life and career, this volume offers essays by leading authorities on the artist's pictorial practice, the stylistic range over Classicism and Romanticism, his writings, both private diary notations and published articles, and his impact on modern aesthetics, among other topics. Designed to serve as an essential resource for students of French nineteenth-century art history, cultural history, and literature, The Cambridge Companion to Delacroix also provides a chronology of the artist's life, set into its political and cultural contexts, as well as a list of suggested further readings in the topic areas.

    • Highly interdisciplinary and poly-methodological
    • Includes translations of all primary and secondary source material, thus providing access for a wide range of readers
    • Provides full bibliographic references as well as a full biographical chronology and political and cultural chronology
