LES FLEURS IN A TURQUOISE VASE

 

 

Odilon Redon, Flowers in a Turquoise Vase, 1912, oil on canvas, Private Collection

…Colors contain a joy which relaxes me, besides, they sway me toward something different and new.

Odilon Redon

French artist Odilon Redon (1840-1916) is often categorized as a Symbolist, creating flowers that are closer to fantasy than reality.   A contemporary also of the French Impressionists, Redon utilized a range of vibrant and dream-like colors that still move viewers in 2017.
