这幅来自无法估量的德拉克洛瓦的作品代表了印象派艺术某些方面的浪漫前奏曲,在收藏品中占有特殊的地位。它将历史绘画的强大传统与现代性的微妙工程联系起来。这是一个不太适合指令的对象。几乎是运动的处理,油漆是在快速繁荣应用典型的德拉克罗伊和#39;的后期方式。尽管他年轻和成熟的作品经常是大规模的,但他在整个职业生涯中创作了较小的画架画和素描。&#安吉丽卡和受伤的梅多罗是他不止一次涉及的文学主题,尽管很少有这种版本的自由和自发性。像毕加索一样,德拉克罗瓦是他自己形式的不断再发明者,这反映了他在任何时候的内心状态。

Representing a romantic prelude to certain aspects of impressionist technique, this composition from the inestimable Delacroix has a special place in the collection. It links the formidable tradition of history painting to the subtler project of modernity. Here is an object less for instruction than delectation. Almost athletic in handling, the paint is applied in speedy flourishes typical of Delacroix's late manner. Though the works of his youth and maturity were frequently large in scale, he produced smaller easel paintings and sketches throughout his career. 'Angelica and the wounded Medoro' is a literary subject he tackled more than once, though rarely with the freedom and spontaneity of this version. Like Picasso, Delacroix was a ceaseless re-inventor of his own forms, which reflected his inner state at any given time.AGNSW Handbook, 1999.
