Summary: Noon and Riopelle explore the artist's influence on modern art in the late-18th and early-20th centuries. An analysis and comparison with works by various artists whom he influenced include Edouard Manet, John Singer Sargent, Henri Fantin-Latour, Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Odilon Redon, Paul Gauguin, Eugène Fromentin, Théodore Chassériau, Narcisse-Virgile Diaz de la Peña, Frédéric Bazille, Ary Scheffer, Gustave Moreau, Alexandre-Gabriel Decamps, Vincent van Gogh, Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas, Richard Parkes Bonington, Gustave Courbet, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Jean Metzinger, and Wassily Kandinsky.Summary: "Eugène Delacroix (1789-1863), a dominant figure in 19th-century French art, was a complex and contradictory painter whose legacy is deep and enduring. This important, beautifully illustrated book considers Delacroix in his own time, alongside contemporaries such as Courbet, Fromentin, and the poet Charles Baudelaire, as well as his significant influence on successive generations of artists. Delacroix's paintings and his posthumously published Journals laid crucial groundwork for immediate successors including Cézanne, Degas, Manet, Monet, and Renoir. Later admirers including Seurat, Gauguin, Moreau, Redon, Van Gogh, and Matisse renewed the obsession with his work. Through essays and catalogue entries, the authors demonstrate how Delacroix became mentor and archetype to younger generations who sought direction for their own creative experiments, and found inspiration in Delacroix's brilliant use of color, audacious technique, and rebellious nature."--Distributor's description.

Library Journal Review

As the supporting book to an exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and London's National Gallery of Art, this title examines the relationship of the 19th-century French romantic artist Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) and the influence he had on the artists that followed, from Henri Fantin-Latour to the impressionists, neo-impressionists, post-impressionists, and on into the early 20th century with Henri Matisse. Museum curators Noon (Minneapolis Inst. of Arts) and Riopelle (National Gallery, London) discuss Delacroix's virtuosic use of color and brushstrokes as well as his imagination and personal vision in the interpretation of his subject matter. They argue that the artist was an inspiration to later avant-garde innovators such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Odilon Redon, and Matisse. In terms of technique, these artists shared Delacroix's original and forceful use of brushstrokes and color. Cézanne, -Redon, Renoir, and Matisse also employed allegorical, literary, and orientalist themes in a similar way to Delacroix. VERDICT This well-written and -researched book is recommended for readers interested in 19th-century French art.-Sandra Rothenberg, -Framingham State Univ. Lib., MA © Copyright 2016.
