Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix (26/4/1798 – 13/8/1863) was a French Romantic Painter, regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school. Probably Delacroix's best known painting is 'Liberty Leading the People' (1830). It is an unforgettable image of Parisians, having taken up arms, marching forward under the banner of the tricolore representing liberty and freedom; Delacroix was inspired by contemporary events to invoke the romantic image of the spirit of liberty.
Carlo Carrà (11/2/1881—13/4/1966) was an Italian Painter and a leading figure of the Futurist movement. Carrà's most famous painting is 'The Funeral of the Anarchist Galli' (Funerali dell'anarchico Galli). It was finished in 1911. The subject of the work is the funeral of Italian anarchist Angelo Galli, killed by police during a general strike in 1904. The Italian State feared that the funeral would become a 'de facto' political demonstration and refused the mourning anarchists entrance into the cemetery itself. When anarchists resisted, the police responded with force and a violent scuffle ensued.
Carlo Carrà was present. His painting is said to embody the tension and chaos of the scene: the movement of the bodies, the clashing of anarchists and police, the black flags flying in the air.
Eligiusz Niewiadomski (1/12/1869 – 31/1/1923, Warsaw) was a Polish Modernist Painter and art critic who belonged to the right-wing National Democratic Party until 1904 and continued supporting it after leaving. In 1922 he assassinated Poland's first President, Gabriel Narutowicz.
