Description of the painting by Eugene Delacroix “Moroccan saddle horse”


Eugene Delacroix belongs to the course of French romantics. Adherence to this direction was reflected in the picture Moroccan, saddling a horse. The artist with tremendous accuracy conveys the smallest details of the scene. We see folds on Moroccan clothes, every wrinkle on his face.

The plot of the canvas Eugene Delacroix gleaned from his trip to Morocco. Then he was impressed by the strict beauty of Moroccan nature and the courage and freedom of this eastern people, which the artist tried to express in his work. But this work did not turn into a dry reproduction of the ethnic characteristics of the visited state.

Eugene Delacroix remains true to himself and portrays the Moroccan through the prism of romanticism. The plot, which is simple in its essence, has deep dynamics thanks to a special writing technique. A bizarre combination of contrasting shades, fluidity and iridescent colors, the severity of shapes and contours gives the work a special romantic pathos and allows you to convey the combination of the main anxiety of the main character of the picture for external ostentatious detachment.

The painting was painted with a heavy brush. Thick strokes intensify the oppressive anxiety of the protagonist. Thunderclouds, a worrying sea, the contrast of the background colors and the sad figure of a horseman retreating in the background give the picture a mood of alarming expectation. The dagger on the Moroccan’s belt, the red cloth, as if burning his hands and the alarmed pose of the horse, suggest that a certain event awaits the hero on the trip. And there is no certainty that his outcome will be favorable for the hero. But what should happen to the Moroccan on the journey, the artist is silent, allowing the viewer to think out the ending of the story on his own.
