|Summary, etc.:|| "This groundbreaking publication centers on a previously unknown variation of Eugène Delacroix's (1798-1863) dramatic masterpiece The Last Words of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, published here for the first time. This book offers a compelling reassessment of the relationship of the artist, widely consider a primary exemplar of Romanticism, to Neoclassical themes, as demonstrated by his life-long fascination with the death of Marcus Aurelius. Through this investigation, the authors reinterpret Delacroix's lineage to such fellow artists as Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) and Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825). Playing on the various interpretations of the word "finish," the book also offers a fascinating account of Delacroix's famously troubled collaboration with his studio assistants, his conflicted feelings about pedagogy, and his preoccupation with the fate of civilizations"-- Provided by publisher.
