Baudelaire thought that, of all contemporary artists, Delacroix alone excelled in the painting of religious subjects, and that he alone ‘sait faire de la religion’. This chapter focuses on a relatively small number of key paintings La Madeleine dans le dé sert, La Mort de Sardanapale, La Lutte de Jacob avec l'ange, Pietà, Les Femmes d'Alger, and Ovide chez les Scythes.

Keywords:   Baudelaire, Delacriox, criticism, religious paintings, La Madeleine dans le dé sert, La Mort de Sardanapale, La Lutte de Jacob avec l'ange, Pietà, Les Femmes d'Alger, Ovide chez les Scythes
