Quantcast
Patriots, Pashas, and Peasants: French Painting from Delacroix to Courbet, Part One

"Lure of the Exotic"

Speaker:
Kathryn Calley Galitz, Associate Museum Educator, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The 1820s witnessed the birth of Romanticism, as Delacroix, Ingres, and other French artists embraced new subjects, inspired by cross-Channel exchanges and the lure of the exotic. The Paris Salon of 1824 launched the battle between the Romantics and the Classicists, an aesthetic struggle that defined a generation of French artists. By mid-century, the modern-life subjects of Courbet and Manet threatened to subvert the artistic establishment, setting the stage for the Impressionist revolution.
