Jobert not only re-creates the political and cultural arenas in which Delacroix thrived, but also allows readers rare opportunity to appreciate the full range of his artistic production. Delacroix's large canvases, decorative cycles, watercolors, and engravings, which are widely dispersed throughout the world, are beautifully represented here with 231 color plates. The book is timed to commemorate the bicentenary of Delacroix's birth.
