Tim Marlow: Great Artists

Delacroix

About this programme

The art historian explores the life and work of French painter Eugene Delacroix, whose powerful pictures have proved an inspiration for Picasso, Cezanne and Matisse. Born to a well-to-do family, he was brought up by his aunt after his mother squandered her late husband's fortune, and took his own inspiration from classical mythology as well as actual historical events. A trip to Morocco fed his appetite for the exotic, but it is as an establishment Republican artist that he will be best remembered.
