"My drawings inspire and can not be defined, they do not determine anything, they place us as well as the music in the ambiguous realm of the indeterminate."

Odilon Redon's work emerged in the heyday of light-drenched Impressionism and could not be more contrary to it. Redon was a master of shadow and darkness. He took a deep breath, intersected with the unconscious, and found images of fear and death.
"What sets the artist apart from the dilettante?" Redon asked. "Only the pain that the artist feels, the dilettante is only looking for pleasure."
As a forerunner of Expressionism and Surrealism, Redon created in his "black phase" with charcoal drawings and prints the well-known nightmare pictures with eyeballs released from the body, the motif of the smiling spider or the image of the "raven" inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's poem "The Raven" sitting as death messenger on the windowsill.
In the spirit of surrealism, Redon repeatedly blurs the boundaries between dream and reality. He shows a "cactus man", the spines grow from his head, the 1885 drawn "egg" has eyes and protrudes as a hairless skull half out of an egg cup. After the painful loss of his first son, Redon's work changes dramatically in the second phase of his work, which begins after the second son's birth. His paintings are now full of colorful radiance and shine in the bright tones of pastel crayons used by him. The artist turns to the outside world: he paints landscapes in clear colors, flowery still lifes and thematically opens up to the transcendent notions of Christian and Buddhist mythology. © Meisterdrucke
