"Le beau courtroom les rues : il y est désespérant, et l. a. peinture ou plutôt l. a. rage de peindre paraît los angeles plus grande des folies."

Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) a connu une gloire paradoxale. Si sa Liberté guidant le peuple est sans doute un des tableaux les plus célèbres du monde, si son portrait ornait naguère les billets de cent francs, sa personnalité reste mal connue. Peintre génial, passant indifféremment d’œuvres d’inspiration religieuse ou littéraire à d’autres plus en rapport avec l’actualité de son temps, il n’hésita pas à sacrifier le dessin au revenue de l. a. couleur. Peintre officiel du moment Empire, tantôt honni tantôt follement admiré, il fut l’un des tout premiers artistes à peindre l’Orient d’après nature. Romantique malgré lui, dandy et sauvage, misanthrope et mondain, ce grand mélancolique admiré par Baudelaire influença de nombreux peintres tels Signac, Van Gogh ou Cézanne, lequel observant Femmes d’Alger affirma : "Nous y sommes tous dans ce Delacroix."
