Eugène Delacroix

1798 Charenton-Saint-Maurice – 1863 Paris

The famous painter, Eugène Delacroix, turned his attention to printmaking in 1814 when he was still very young. He experimented with aqua­tint and in 1827 created one of the main early works of French lithography with his magnum opus Faust after Goethe. In 1833 he made a small group of etchings which provide an impressive demonstration of his mastery of the medium.
