Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) was a fascinating man, a great painter, and a typically intellectual French hero. Baudelaire called him "a volcanic crater artistically concealed beneath bouquets of flowers." He came to epitomise the French aesthetic of romanticism and to embody this important artistic movement.

Dedicated to his life and work, the Musée National Delacroix is situated in a lovely square on The Left Bank. Delacroix moved here in 1857 to be close to Eglise St-Sulpice in which he was painting at the time.

Much of his early work is housed here including a number of small oil paintings, pastels, sketches, and lithographs.

The Musée National Delacroix also houses much of Delacroix’s personal belongings including memorabilia from his trips abroad and letters to and from his contemporaries. It is quite fascinating to wander among his work and living quarters and to get more of an idea of how he lived.

The Musée National Delacroix is a lovely exploration of this great painter’s life and death, of his brilliant work, and workspace. The Paris Pass allows you access to this great museum.

Made us see new attractions in Paris I have been to Paris many times. First time I bought Paris Pass - but not the last. Besides the convinience in transportation, the guide book gave good inspiration and information to new expirienzes in this wonderful City !

Fabulous! The Paris Pass was great to have on hand during our trip. We only had 5 days, and with 3 children in tow, we wanted to keep things moving as much as possible. We would absolutely recommend utilizing The Paris Pass. In order to get the most out of it, I would encourage you to carefully look through the guidebook so that you can plan out a general guideline to follow for your trip to make sure that you are using all of the opportunities. Enjoy!
