Famous quotes containing the word delacroix:

    I am carrying out my plan, so long formulated, of keeping a journal. What I most keenly wish is not to forget that I am writing for myself alone. Thus I shall always tell the truth, I hope, and thus I shall improve myself. These pages will reproach me for my changes of mind.
    —Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)

    The studio has become the crucible where human genius at the apogee of its development brings back to question not only that which is, but creates anew a fantastic and conventional nature which our weak minds, impotent to harmonize it with existing things, adopt by preference, because the miserable work is our own.
    —Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)

    A taste for simplicity cannot endure for long.
    —Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)
