Redon, Odilon. 1840-1916

Woman with Wildflowers

France, Circa 1890/1900

The iconography of this Hermitage pastel is similar to that of the works in a black-and-white manner that was typical of Redon before 1890. The enigmatic and tragic image of the woman was the result of the mystic and symbolic conception of Redon. In style this work has much in common with the pastels produced in the 1890s to the early 1900s. However, its colouring enables us to attribute it to the mid- or late 1890s. It was in this period that the artist was keen on experiments with colours. He stopped working in the black-and-white manner and started to combine drawing in charcoal with golden-yellow, green and blue pastel.
