This is French artist, Eugene Delacroix’s painting, The Barque of Dante (1822). Delacroix was a leading Romantic artist who rejected the academic rules of his time. This painting is one of the first major shifts in Delacroix's paintings. His use of complementary hues (colors) painted side by side preceded the art of the Impressionists. The figure at the left front of the painting has been foreshortened. The dark values around the figure and also the mid tones modeling the body contrast and enhance the figure’s luminosity.
