The Paris of Emilie-Musée Delacroix

Le Paris d’Emilie-Museé Delacroix

Red, the color of passion and romanticism by excellence, is the perfect hue to match Frederic Villot's Sardanapale, tribute to the masterpiece by Delacroix in the Louvre, for whom “the first virtue of a painting is to be a feast for the eyes.”

Delacroix liked fashion and paid attention to his style as a true dandy, as we can see in this copy of his self-portrait by Hippolyte-Charles Gaultron exhibited in Delacroix museum.
We remember then, in front of this painting, these words by Baudelaire: “Beautiful as a tiger”! Yes indeed, the French romantic master who was famous for his lyrical depictions of cat-like owns this feline charm himself.
