I just wanted to say that I was impressed by your packaging and shipping. I found you when I was searching for papers I just couldn't get locally and thought it was worth trying an order. I'd been resigned to the idea that small paper orders would end up rolled and in a tube, but I was pleasantly surprised to find my order shipped flat and well protected. Thank you. I will be ordering from you again.

Eugène Delacroix

Eugène Delacroix

(1798 - 1863)
Born: Charenton-St-Maurice, France
Style: Romanticism
Famous Works:
  • Jeune Orpheline au Cimetiere (1824)
  • Liberty Leading the People (1830)
  • The Justice of Trajan (1858)
Eugène Delacroix met Théodore Géricault as a teenager student at the École des Beaux-Arts, the two students shared a passion for horses. Years later, the two artists came to be known as the strictest followers of the Romantic movement. Delacroix's work displays not only the expert draughtsmanship of Jean-Auguste-Dominque Ingres, but also an emotional connection that was much more elevated than Ingres' relatively dry academicism. In 1824 Géricault died from a riding accident, and Delacroix exhibited The Massacres at Chios. It met with mixed but impassioned reviews. The debut of the painting set in motion a twenty-five year rivalry with Ingres. Delacroix wanted to use color to render line less important, while the graceful and sensual contours of Ingres were in exact opposition. The Death of Sardanapalus, 1827, typifies the twisted, complex compositions, and the brilliant colors of Delacroix's work. The king lies on an enormous, blood red bed, gazing a scene of blood and horror. He has just ordered all his slaves and harem women killed. The scandalous painting is imbued with the emotion of the extreme historical subject. Delacroix went to Morocco in 1832, where he filled sketchbooks with drawings of women and animal hunts that demonstrated his further experimentation with the relationships between different colors. He was honored in the 1840s with a commission from the French government to paint the ceilings at the Chamber of Deputies, the Senate, and the Louvre. His vision exists today not only in his legacy as a painter, but also in his writings.

I love them and am in a state of disbelief that they appear to be going out of production. Very few are available.

I bought a set of these from HSN. I am always looking for scissors, especially since I am left handed and I have to turn scissors upside down in the first place for them to cut. They came and I used them. Then I bought another set and then another set. They are the best scissors on the market, bar none. They are comfortable to hold, sharper than any scissors I have ever used, and I love them. I have a set downstairs, I have a set upstairs, and I have a set in my travel tote. I would recommend these scissors without hesitation.

It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.
