*Rococo Revisited
Eugène Delacroix, Basket of Flowers
Palais des Beaux-Arts, Lille 
Flowers in Winter: A frequent guest of George Sand at her château in Nohant, renowned for its lovely gardens, Delacroix painted one of his most uninhibited bouquets for the writer (Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna).
Although he is best known for his works on historical events, or his fascination for Orientalism, Eugène Delacroix did not neglect floral subjects, which allowed him to experiment with color. While his major paintings on floral subjects date from the last fifteen years of his life, throughout his career Delacroix took to sketching flowers in his notebooks and mentioned them occasionally in his journal.
