I’m in love with Delacroix!! Went to see exhibition at the National Gallery yesterday and I’m still buzzing!! Woke up thinking Delacroix this morning. Want to see exhibition again!!! But not today…too wide-eyed at the moment. Trying to stop myself from becoming a groupie!! Dont think I can ever see too much Delacroix. Learnt so much!. Its amazing how you often think of light and shade, colour theories, layering etc but when you see it applied so thoroughly in a painting. Its breathtaking. I totally get why he inspired so many great artists.
Delacroix and the rise of modern art is a must see!
