    Odilon Redon ist ein Kunstler, der sich nirgendwo einordnen lasst. Als Zeitgenosse der Impressionisten wurzelt sein Oeuvre nicht in der Wirklichkeit, sondern in seiner eigenen Traumwelt. Sein Werk hat zwei Seiten, die als genaue Gegensatze erscheinen: die eine duster und angstvoll, die andere bunt und beschwingt, doch verbinden sie sich zu einer Art symbolistischer Magie. Odilon Redon (1840-1916) ist zweifellos einer der Kunstler, der seiner Zeit am meisten voraus war. Dem Naturalismus und Impressionismus stand er gleichgultig gegenuber und lie sich ausschliesslich von seiner Fantasie und seinen Traumen inspirieren. Als Kind litt er unter kindlichen Angstanfallen und so ist der erste Teil seines Werkes durch seine Noirs und seineHolzkohle-Arbeiten gekennzeichnet, die wegbereitend fur seine beruhmten monochromen Lithographien waren. Am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts anderten sich seine Arbeiten radikal: Seine Angstzustande entwickelte sich weiter,aber er wandte sich jetzt den Farben zu. Er malte zahlreiche Stillleben und befasste sich mit der dekorativen Kunst. Die Magie, die von seinem Lebenswerk ausgeht, versetzt ihn in die symbolistische Bewegung und erkennt ihn als Vorlaufer des Surrealismus an.

    Odilon Redon is a genre-breaking artist. A contemporary of the Impressionists, his oeuvre found its source not in reality but in his own dreams. His work has two sides, which appear to be almost opposite ends: one is daunting and grim, the other one, colourful and lively, they nevertheless merge into a kind of Symbolist magic. Odilon Redon (1840-1916) is without doubt one of the artists who was the most ahead of his time. Indifferent to Naturalism and Impressionism, he drew inspiration from his imagination and his dreams. Affected by infantile fears, the first part of his oeuvre is characterized by his Noirs, charcoal works which gave way to his famous monochrome lithographs. At the end of the 19th century, his work changed radically: his fear evolved and the colors burst out on the canvas. He painted numerous still lifes and turned towards decorative art. The magic, which emanates from his life's work places him within the Symbolist movement yet hails him as the precursor to Surrealism.The colours used are mostly yellow, grey, brown and light blue.

    One of the most expressive artists of the Symbolism movement, Odilon (1840–1916) led a quiet life. Withdrawn in manner, conventional in dress, and virtually unknown for the first half of his career, the French painter and graphic artist drew upon his own startlingly complex and fantastic inner world to create haunting works that reveal an existence beyond that of everyday vision. He transformed common subjects and models into strange, eerie images and exhibited a predilection for spiders and serpents, skeletons and skulls, gnomes and monsters — all rendered in a distinctive style of controlled, delicate realism.Redon's popularity arose chiefly among young progressive artists, who considered his works as visual correspondence to the literary symbolism of Mallarmé. Modern devotees regard Redon's translation of the subconscious world of dreams into visual reality as a precursor to Surrealism. This modestly priced volume offers a rich compilation of the influential artist's graphic works, with 209 illustrations — 72 lithographs, plus 37 etchings and engravings — depicting unforgettable scenes of fantasy and mystery.
