Asher Miller is Associate Curator of European Paintings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he has worked since 2001. He is curator of The Met’s fall exhibition Delacroix, the first full-career retrospective of this central figure of the Romantic movement ever held in North America, which was organized in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, Paris.

This lecture sheds light on the creative imagination of a beguiling, deeply reflective artist, the French Romantic painter Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863). It explores the brief but incredibly fertile period in the later 1830s when he produced a sequence of dazzling, seemingly disparate paintings that had been gestating for a decade or more.
