Musée Eugène Delacroix

in detail

Her chosen favorites evoke personal memories of her childhood and youth spent in the heart of France, not far from Nohant, where French writer George Sand lived and Delacroix once stayed. In addition to the works from the museum, Christine Angot also selected some contemporary pieces by Johan Creten, Charles Simonds, and Werner Herzog. This exhibition launches the first literary season at the Musée Delacroix on the theme of the creation of art, literature, and music.

The writings of Delacroix will be compared with contemporary conceptions. The question “Who were you at 25 years old?” will tie all of the projects together, in an attempt to find out what drove, revolted, and troubled the participating artists and led them to become what they are today. Each of their experiences, each path, will reveal the issues that influence us all, irrespective of our backgrounds.
