Ingres and Delacroix. Artists' Objects

27 March 2024 10 June 2024
A tobacco jar in the shape of a fish that belonged to Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863), a gilded laurel crown awarded to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) by the citizens of Montauban to celebrate his admission to the Senate, an illuminator's inkpot in Fez-style pottery, brought back by Delacroix from his travels in Morocco in 1832, paint-daubed palettes, Ingres's famous violin......

These ordinary objects bear witness to the personal tastes and creative processes of two great artists. What do they tell us about their famous owners? How much of the man was in the artist? How much of the artist in the man? Ingres et Delacroix: Artists' Objects (27 March-10 June 2024) suggests some answers.

Organised by the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix - Établissement Public du Musée du Louvre and the Musée Ingres Bourdelle - Ville de Montauban, this exhibition will be presented in Paris from 27 March to 10 June 2024, then, in a version adapted for that locale, in Montauban from 11 July to 10 November 2024.
