Summary

Eugene Delacroix was the greatest French painter of the Romantic Movement. In spite of being hailed as the leader of the Romantic Movement, his predilection for exotic and emotionally charged subject-matter, and his open hostility with Ingres, Delacroix always claimed loyalty to the classical tradition. In his later career he became one of the most distinguished monumental mural painters. Delacroix's output was enormous. After his death his executors found more than 9,000 paintings, pastels, and drawings in his studio and he prided himself on the speed at which he worked, declaring 'If you are not skilful enough to sketch a man falling out of a window during the time it takes him to get from the fifth level to the ground, then you will never be able to produce monumental work.' Among great painters he was also one of the finest writers on art. His influence, particularly through his use of color, was prodigious, inspiring Renoir, Seurat, and van Gogh among others.

    Poems Of A Musical Flavour:...

    In 1989 I was 15 and started writing song lyrics. Why? Because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson, on whom I was also majorly crushing. I thought I was hot and wrote prolifically, although I started writing late in the year. I was also playing drums in my music class’s end-of-year musical.
     
    In 1990 I was 16 and out of school, listening to more, doing more, and reading more. So more artists were in my life and I was starting to analyse song lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books…
     
    Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings, namely novels over 500 pages and 100,000 words, and now novellas and short stories.
     
    This book features lyrics I wrote from 1989 to 1990 and contains some witty one liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.
     
    They are not perfect, nor meant to be, they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.
     
    Enjoy!
