Note on Art

Subject

A  note from LeRoy Neiman on Delacroix and visiting Paris. 

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman details in influence of Eugène Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People (1830) on his experience of Paris (and presumedly the work he made in the city as well). The writing—split into two portions—is fissured between a cursory formal analysis of Delacroix’s work and a humorous, autobiographical anecdote.
