A close look at some of the masterpieces produced in France in the 19th century

In France, the 19th opened with a coup. Napoleon not only ended the French Revolution and conquered most of Europe, he dramatically changed the country’s social and political landscape, paving the way for a tumultuous few decades, marked by industrialization, urbanization, scientific and technological progress, literary and artistic creation, colonial expansion.

Delacroix Meissonier, Gerôme, Winterhalter, Beraud, those great painters were both key witnesses and actors of this fascinating century.

1825-1830, The Colors of the Revolution

A look at three masterpieces illustrating the end of the French Restoration: the official portrait of Charles X, the last king of France, a very political portrait, Eugène Delacroix’s famous Liberty guiding the people, Marianne brandishing the tricolour flag, the universal symbol of revolution as perceived by the Romantic artistic movement and Louis-Philippe of Orléans (the cousin) leaving his Parisian residence for city hall, a masterpiece of propaganda aimed at legitimizing the transition of power.
