Does anyone know a better couple than Romeo and Juliet when it comes to symbolize love on February 14, 2020? For Valentine’s Day, the Musée national Eugène Delacroix offers us a daytime focus on painter Delacroix’s painting, Roméo et Juliette au tombeau des Capulet. The museum agents will make us discover the work exhibited in the painter’s bedroom.
Romeo hugging Juliet as he’s in despair leading to his death and Juliette’s – real – one. The story of the two lovers of Verona spanned the centuries and travelled all around the world. In Paris, painter Eugène Delacroix was inspired by the story to create a painting, exhibited at the Musée Eugène Delacroix. For Valentine’s Day, the museum offers us to rediscover the legendary play written by William Shakespeare, a story of love for lovebirds.
Let’s meet in Delacroix’s latest apartment bedroom to listen to the story of the museum agents about this work of art.
