Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863). French Romantic artist regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school. His use of expressive brushstrokes and his study of the optical effects of colour profoundly shaped the work of the Impressionists, while his passion for the exotic inspired the artists of the Symbolist movement. A fine lithographer, he illustrated various works of Shakespeare, W.Scott and Goethe.

George Eliot was the pen name of Mary Anne Evans, a walking, breathing lesson in the power of having a single-minded will. Sure, other women were publishing under their own names by the time she wrote what some have called the greatest English novel, Middlemarch.
