Under the influence of the July Revolution in France, Dolylacrois painted the famous painting "Freedom leads the people" (Freedom of the Barricades). It depicts the allegorical figure of freedom among the real participants in the uprising. After traveling to Algeria and Morocco, Delacroix painted a series of paintings marked by exotic and romantic glamor, with a sense of national identity, morality and symbols ("Algerian Women", 1833-34, "Jewish Wedding in Morocco", 1839). Delacroix also made portraits (F. Chopin, 1838, Louvre) and numerous works in the fresco area (Bourbon Palace in Paris, 1833-47). Dylakroa's painting system represents a new step in the development of French painting. The artist uses color as an emotional expression. He is one of the first to use: the principle of color decomposition, a system of additional tones, color shadows and reflections. It has a strong influence on impressionist and post-impressionist artists, as well as on the style of modern art of the 20th century.
