Eugène Delacroix, the greatest French Romantic painter painted the monumental canvas Liberty Leading the People during the July Revolution of 1830. in Paris that removed Charles X, the restored Bourbon king, from the throne after the fall of Napoleon. This painting is seen as a marker to the end of the Age of Enlightenment and the start of the Romantic Era. The work was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1831 under the title Scènes de Barricades. It was quickly bought for three thousand francs by Louis-Philippe and exhibited in the Musée de Luxembourg. Seven years after the death of Eugène Delacroix in 1874, it was given to the Louvre, where it has stayed ever since.
