In an adjoining room, is showed a exposion the great French painter Eugene Delacroix, one of the most prominent figures of Romanticism. It exhibited some of his most known works as Greece Expiring on the Ruins of Missolonghi (Museum of Fine Arts, Bordeaux), one of the sketches of Death of Sardanapalus (Louvre, Paris) or Women of Algiers in Their room (Louvre, Paris), exceptionally loaned for the exhibition.
