Odilon Redon (French, 1840–1916)
Evocation of Butterflies, c. 1910/1912
Odilon Redon’s exuberant flowers are the evolution of a career that began with monochromatic works and ended with his glowing flower paintings. In making works such as this, he referenced the extensive garden he and his wife maintained, but depicted bouquets of fantasy.
