Odilon Redon 1840-1916




The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York




Happy birthday to the French painter Odilon Redon. Between 1908 and 1914, Redon was repeatedly drawn to represent the mythic beauties Venus, Andromeda, and Pandora. Here, he depicts Pandora—the exquisite woman fashioned from clay by the god Vulcan and sent to earth by Jupiter—as a graceful nude amid a profusion of flowers. http://met.org/1YFmtia

Born ‪#‎onthisday‬ in 1840: Odilon Redon, hailed as a master of Symbolist art. This is one of his most famous coloured pastels, and was first shown in the gallery of Durand-Ruel – the favoured dealer of the Impressionists – in 1894. This study of a female profile, called ‘La Cellule d'Or’ (The Golden Cell), suggests introspection and intense feeling. The oil paint over a white ground gives the colour a luminous quality http://ow.ly/10z3gs
