Lithographs by Odilon Redon
'What have I put in my works to suggest so many subtleties? I have put in them a little door opening onto a mystery. I have made fictions. It is up to [the viewer] to go further.'
This exhibition explores the theme of light in the lithographs of the French Symbolist artist Odilon Redon (1840-1916). Redon's innovative approach to printmaking allowed him to create ambiguous yet deeply suggestive images through the exploration of the expressive potential of light and dark.
This online version went live to coincide with the gallery display Lumière: Lithographs by Odilon Redon (22 September 2009 - 10 January 2010).
