Baudelaire: "Romanticism is precisely situated neither in choice of subject matter nor in exact truth, but in a way of feeling." The greatest French Romantic painter, whose use of colour was influential in the development of both Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painting. His inspiration came chiefly from historical or contemporary events or literature, and a visit to Morocco in 1832 provided him with further exotic subjects. Among his later easel paintings are ones on Arab, religious, and classical subjects and several superb scenes of wild animals and hunts.
