Romantic   •   Ferdinand Victor Eugene Delacroix @ Wikipedia

Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) is one of the most important French painters of the 19th century. He is considered a pioneer of modernity, especially of impressionism.

His most famous painting testifies to the painter's political commitment. " The liberty leads the people ", so the emphatic title of the painting from the year 1830. The bare-billed allegory of freedom considers the tricolor as a symbol of bourgeois freedom in the right, followed by armed citizens and workers. The picture refers to the July Revolution of 1830.

Even the freedom struggle of the Greeks against the Ottomans is exaggerated by Delacroix in the picture. " Dying Greece on the Ruins of Messolongi " also shows Greece in the form of an attractive young woman who proudly presents herself to the viewer on the ruins of a ruined city. His close ties to literature are underlined by Delacroix, for example with his lithographs on Goethe's Faust.

Color and light were more important to Delacroix than the exact line of the classicists. In doing so, he prepares the way for the autonomy of color in relation to the depicted object; at the same time, his work claims to directly reflect the political struggles of the time. © Meisterdrucke
