Odilon Redon a painter for whom the true dimension of art is the dream

Odilon Redon

Bertrand-Jean Redon, better known as Odilon Redon, was born in France in 1840.
A great forerunner of the Symbolist movement, this French painter was also an engraver, a draughtsman and a pastellist.
His first significant works are lithographs. They are visionary works in which black predominates in various tones and this is why Redon calls them "blacks".

It was only in 1890 that he abandoned the "blacks" and devoted himself almost exclusively to oil painting and pastels.

Redon describes his work as ambiguous and indefinable: "My drawings inspire and should not be defined. Precisely for this reason many call him a painter of dreams. In his works, with the representation of dreamlike and grotesque figures, he expresses an exploration of his feelings.
