I recently stumbled on this article by Christopher Knight in The Los Angeles Times that reports on the possible discovery of a new work by Eugène Delacroix. The article states that a curator at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art believes The Last Words of Marcus Aurelius (above left) to be a previously unidentified painting by the artist. It’s currently included in an exhibition displayed next to similar works by the artist, as well as a known copy, to demonstrate the argument.
Compare it above with Delacroix’s Hercules and Alcestis from The Phillips Collection. What do you think?
