Located in the last studio of the romantic painter, the Delacroix Museum brings out a particularly powerful imagination. A place of memory, it is also, thanks to the ambition of its transformation into a museum by the great artists of the 1920s, a place of creation and a place to live. Dedicated to the studio and the metamorphoses it authorizes, allows and provokes, the exhibition In the studio, creation at work...
The exhibition shows Delacroix's creative genius by highlighting, for a set of selected works, the sources to which he has referred and the studies he has drawn, painted or formatted. Delacroix kept in his studio the drawings and preparatory studies for all his works, so many notes that the artist could use for other compositions or projects.
