Delacroix’s correspondence

Correspondance d'Eugène Delacroix
Correspondance d’Eugène Delacroix

In partnership with the Université Paris IV-Sorbonne, this database - still in the trial phase at the moment - will include all of the vast correspondence of Eugène Delacroix. Besides the addition of the many letters found since the six tomes of correspondence were published by André Joubin in the 1930s, all of the transcriptions warranted revising and the annotation fully updated. This major team effort, supported by a grant from the French National Research Agency, aims to provide online access to a diplomatic transcription of texts (paired if possible with a photograph of the manuscript), an updated version, an interactive annotation, and an index of letters. A significant number of letters should be added to the database within the year, at which point it will be more officially launched to the community of Delacroix researchers and enthusiasts.
