Odilon Redon

I am certain about what I will never do - but not about what my art will render.
~Odilon Redon

French artist Odilon Redon, who lived from 1840-1916, was a master of mystery and melancholy.

There is definitely a darkness to Redon's work, but the effect is beautiful.

Interesting that he would use lots of color in some and almost none in others.

I am curious as to why he called an obvious drawing a "photograph," though.

So haunting, and beautiful.

These look incredibly modern/contemporary, too.

Thanks for sharing, Tabatha.
