Passionate and precocious, Eugene Delacroix was born on this day in 1798 in a suburb of Paris, to a family rooted in the French Revolution. Equally revolutionary was his no-holds-barred painting style—riffing strongly off his Venetian idols—which made him a reluctant cause célèbre. Despite this ambiguity, and his lifelong delicate health, Delacroix was quickly established in the Romantic pantheon. The Barnes’s Delacroix in room 13 of the Collection Gallery is an oil study for a late mural masterpiece, the ceiling of the Chapel of the Holy Angels of the Church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris. “I have no love for reasonable painting,” Delacroix states in his journal, and the miasmic subject of “Saint Michael Defeats the Devil” may speak to this individualistic streak. 🎨 Eugene Delacroix. “Saint Michael Defeats the Devil,” probably 1850.

On Tues, April 24, members of The Goldenberg Group gave the Little Playhouse, located on the Playground, a much-needed makeover. They worked hard to rehab the interior of the playhouse with a new table, bench and shelving, as well as a new paint job! The volunteers also built and installed a giant, wood xylophone that will be the start of an "everyday item" music zone. The wonderful volunteers from the Goldenberg Group donated 60+ hours of labor. On behalf of all the children that visit Smith - thank you so much!
