Collection: Odilon Redon
Odilon Redon (1840-1916) was a French artist known for his striking and imaginative drawings, prints, and paintings. Born in Bordeaux, Redon initially studied architecture before turning to art. He was heavily influenced by the Symbolist movement and his work often depicted fantastical and dreamlike scenes, as well as darker, more macabre themes.
Redon's work evolved over time, from his early black and white charcoal drawings to his later, more colorful pastels and paintings. He also experimented with printmaking, producing a series of lithographs that are now considered among his most important works.
Despite his success and critical acclaim, Redon remained a somewhat enigmatic figure, shying away from the public eye and preferring to let his art speak for itself. Today, he is recognized as a key figure in the development of modern art and continues to be celebrated for his unique and visionary style.
