Riassunto: Odilon Redon's oeuvre marks the threshold between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries, and thus also represents the interplay between tradition and innovation. Fractures and contrasts characterize his artistic development, from the black-and-white of his early, dark lithographs and works in charcoal to the veritable explosions of color in his bright pastels and oils. Bizarre monsters appear alongside heavenly creatures in a blend of dream and nightmare, nature and vision. Tending toward internalization, the mythic, sacred and biological motifs in Redon's works underwent a turn toward the mystical, not only on account of his subject matter, but also through the aesthetic aspects of color and form. Greatly admired by contemporaries such as Paul Cézanne and Edgar Degas, Redon influenced artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Marcel Duchamp, as well as the Surrealists. The artist's brilliant ideas and his contextually, technically and materially multifaceted body of work are presented in this catalogue.
Born in France to a prosperous family, Odilon Redon (1840-1916) began drawing at an early age and moved to Paris after unsuccessful forays into architecture and sculpture. Redon began his career working primarily in charcoal and lithography, before transitioning to oils and pastels in the 1890s. With his keen interest in literature, Redon found champions and collaborators in Joris-Karl Huysmans, Emile Hennequin and, most significantly, the Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé. Redon's work achieved international renown after being exhibited at the American Armory Show in 1913.
Sinossi: Odilon Redon's fantastic imagery, evoking the workings of the unconscious mind, has often seemed to be more closely aligned with the art of the 20th century than that of the 19th. Yet his highly symbolic visions of a dreamlike world have remained enigmatic and frequently misunderstood. Published as the catalogue for the first major retrospective exhibition of Redon's work in the Royal Academy, London in February 1995 (previously shown at the Art Institute of Chicago), this book explores Redon's life and work in full detail. Re-shaping our understanding of this intriguing artist and his career, seven prominent experts place Redon in the context of his own time by analysing his relationship to the literary, scientific and cultural developments of the late 19th century. They offer a wide-ranging discussion of his literary and visual influences and sources, incorporating important new documentary material. The authors include Douglas Druick who is the Searle Curator of European Painting and Prince Trust Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago; Peter Kort Zegers, Research Curator at the Art Institute of Chicago; Gloria Groom, Assistant Curator of European Painting at the Art Institute of Chicago; Fred Leeman, Chief Curator at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam; Kevin Sharp, Exhibition Co-ordinator at the Art Institute of Chicago; Mary Anne Stevens, Librarian and Head of Education at the Royal Academy of Arts, London; and Harriet K. Straus, Associate Conservator at the Art Institute of Chicago.
