A key figure in art at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, Odilon Redon (1840-1916) had a profound influence on the Symbolist generation, particularly with his famous Noirs, praised by the greatest critics, and later by the young painters who turned to colour, the Nabis and the Fauves. Today he is without doubt one of the least known inventors of modern art.
Laid out chronologically, this retrospective, bringing together paintings, drawings, pastels and charcoal drawings, as well as prints, aims to demonstrate the evolution of Redon’s work, from the anguish of his Noirs to the profusion of colour in his later works.

The exhibition is now over.
