The 19th-century holdings of the Walters Art Museum are unique amongst museum art collections from this period. Highlights from this collection include a series of paintings by the foremost masters of the Romantic era, J. A. D. Ingres and Eugene Delacroix, as well as landscapes by painters associated with the Barbizon school. However, it is in the field of academic art, which dominated French art during the Second Empire (1852-70), that the Walters excels. The conflicts between the academic painters—especially Jean-Leon Gerome and Alexandre Cabanel—and the Impressionists are demonstrated by the museum's collection.
