As the president of the Société des Amis d’Eugène Delacroix, Maurice Denis played a crucial role in the preservation of Delacroix’s last studio on Place de Fürstenberg and its conversion into a Delacroix museum. He committed himself wholeheartedly to the project, investing his reputation as a great artist and assuming the role of director of the nascent institution.
The exhibition, supported by exceptional loans from French and international museums and private collections, will be the first to analyze and showcase the strength and scale of Delacroix’s influence on these artists who were born after his death. It will also allow visitors to discover the recent renovation and extension of the museum.
