ADFAS presents: Following in the footsteps of Delacroix in Africa with Jacqueline Cockburn

  • ADFAS Fitzroy Street Tamworth Australia (map)

In 1830 Delacroix set off for Africa and wrote wonderful journals which we will consider. This lecture will examine his responses to a new country which he saw as exotic, and will discuss why later artists such as Matisse and Kandinsky followed in search of some of his magic. The lecture will look at Delacroix’ working methods and his use of colour and understanding of the light which so inspired him in Africa
