Convulsionists of Tangiers (also The Fanatics of Tangier) is an 1837–38 painting by the French Romantic visual artist Eugène Delacroix.[1][2] It is held by the Minneapolis Institute of Art.


In 1832, while in Morocco as part of a French diplomatic mission, Delacroix witnessed the devotional activities of members of the Isawiyya brotherhood in Tangiers.

Initially the artist did a sketch from his memories of the event, then later several watercolors, and finally four of five years later this painting.[3]
