"French School Of The 19th Century (after Eugène Delacroix) - Dante's Boat In Hells"
19th century French school Eugène DELACROIX (After) Charenton-Saint-Maurice, 1798 – Paris, 1863 Oil on canvas 38 x 46 cm (50 x 58 cm with the frame) Beautiful old frame in carved and gilded wood Exhibited today at the Louvre Museum in the great hall of French Romanticism, "Dante's Barque" was exhibited by Eugène Delacroix at the Paris Salon of 1822 under the original title "Dante and Virgil led by Phlegias, cross the lake which surrounds the walls of the infernal city of Dité". It is with this painting that Delacroix knows for the first time notoriety. As he wrote in a letter to a friend, "I'm coming out of a dog job that's been taking up all my time for two and a half months. I made in this space of time a rather considerable painting which will appear at the Salon. I really wanted to see myself there this year, and it's a stroke of luck that I'm trying. » This painting announces in the invoice, the style and the subject the great period of French Romanticism. Literary inspiration will be essential for Delacroix and the romantic painters, European writers, English often (Walter Scott, Lord Byron) but not only. Dante inspired romantic painters including Ary Scheffer the leader of the movement (Paolo and Francesca, 1835). La Barque de Dante by Delacroix was copied many times in the 19th century by famous artists such as Édouard Manet, Anselm Feuerbach and Paul Cézanne. This is a quality vintage copy by a 19th century artist.
