What does the website of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art say about the work of art from the painter Eugène Delacroix? (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - www.metmuseum.org)

In 1823, Delacroix began to paint this scene from Chateaubriand’s widely read Romantic novel Atala, which narrates the fate of the Natchez people following attacks by French forces in the 1730s. After putting the canvas aside for about a decade, he finally completed the picture for the Paris Salon of 1835. In the catalogue, Delacroix provided this explanatory note: "Fleeing the massacre of their tribe, two young savages traveled up the Mississippi River. During the voyage, the woman was taken by pain of labor. The moment is that when the father holds the newborn in his hands, and both regard him tenderly."
