Faust and Mephistopheles by Eugene Delacroix

Faust and Mephistopheles by Eugene Delacroix

Literary sources are the most important component of Delacroix painting. The first place here, undoubtedly, belongs to the English writers.

But the original “novel” was in Delacroix and Goethe – more precisely, with his “Faust”.

The artist was very fond of this work and created a series of lithographs illustrating it. This series was seen by Goethe and approved of it.
