“I have always felt the need to capture nature in small objects, particularly the casual and accidental.”* Odilon Redon
And what flower is more modest than the delicate pansy that Redon depicts with his vibrant colors.
*Quote of Odilon Redon (1840-1916) from National Gallery of Art, Washington: New and Revised Edition by John Walker, Director Emeritus, Abradale Press with Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1995, New York.
