The documentation department includes a library and documents concerning Delacroix and his entourage.
The library was formed by the Friends of Eugène Delacroix association, which acquired all the older books published by Delacroix’s principal historians (Alfred Robaut, André Joubin, Etienne Moreau-Nélaton, Raymond Escholier). It currently includes more than 1,000 works (monographs, exhibition catalogues, research and so on). It is constantly expanding.
The documentation consists essentially of dossiers about works in the museum’s collection as well as thematic dossiers.
The documentation department is open to researchers and students. Opening hours: Monday, Thursday, and Friday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm by appointment at +33 (0)188.8.131.52.59 /58.
