About the Artist
Odilon Redon (born April 20, 1840, Bordeaux, Fr. — died July 6, 1916, Paris) was a French painter, lithographer, and etcher. He studied under Jean-Léon Gérôme and learned lithography under Henri Fantin-Latour. He came to be associated with the Symbolist painters. His oils and pastels, chiefly still lifes with flowers, won him admiration as a colourist from Henri Matisse and other painters. His prints (nearly 200 in all), which explore fantastic, often macabre themes, foreshadowed Surrealism and Dada.
