Odilon Redon (1840-1916) was a leading figure of the French symbolist movement, which opposed both realism and the flourishing Impressionism of the 19th-century.

For this exhibition, the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo, focuses on Redon’s visions and works of imagination from his contemporaries. The highlight of the show is the museum’s newly acquired “Grand Bouquet” by Redon, which until now had been housed in a French baron’s castle for more than 100 years. The large pastel’s soft but dynamic strokes and Redon’s choice of colors for the flowers make it quite a contrast to his other, darker works.
