    An essential English translation of Delacroix s journals that he kept while in Algeria and Morocco There are few images in this edition, but the text is lovely If you can find a facsimile of the journal to go with this translation, grab it It is a fundamental document in the study of Orientalism read it in conjunction with Edward Said s Orientalism to understand the impact of Delacroix s thoughts on the future of French painting.
