French painter Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863) was one of the greatest creative figures of the nineteenth century. Coming of age after the fall of Napoleon, he reconnected the present to the past on his own terms. The exhibition, a joint project with the Musee du Louvre, illuminates Delacroix’s restless imagination through more than 150 paintings, drawings, prints, and manuscripts - many never before shown in the United States.
