16. Research: Odilon Redon.

9 Dec 2017. I have selected 3 works by Redon which I think are typical of his style and rather bizarre, dreamlike subject matter.

The strong contrasts and shifts in tone, in combination with the subject matter and composition, help to create an unsettling mood. The central image, “In the shadow are people, weeping and praying” reminds me of Henry Moore’s underground drawings.
