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.

Best purchase for first time to Paris! I took my daughter to Paris for a graduation gift. The Paris pass was a lifesaver. We used it everyday, and was accepted for all public transportation. I would highly recommend it.

Fabulous! The Paris Pass was a great buy. Not just because for many sites there was no need to purchase any more tickets, but getting to the front of the line is essential for seeing everything you want and need to see. From the moment we picked up the pass, we began using the metro pass and that was so easy. Also, I purchased the Paris Pass online from the U.S. I was provided with great information about how and where to pick up the pass. That made the whole process fabulous!
