Beyond the Visible “The Art of Odilon Redon”
In 2000, the Ian Woodner Family Collection gifted more than 100 paintings, pastels, watercolors, drawings, prints, and illustrated books to The Museum of Modern Art, substantially augmenting its Redon holdings. The Museum is now the site of the most significant body of the artistB’s work outside France. Highlighting the Woodner gift, this book presents the full range of Redon’s accomplishments–the mysterious charcoal “noirs,” the luminous pastels, the richly textured canvases, the collaborations with literary figures, the experiments with printmaking techniques–through the MuseumB’s now unparalleled collection of the artistB’s work. With essays on the artist’s career, his key role in a European literary milieu, his achievements in printmaking, and his unique methods and materials, as well as a catalogue of MoMA’s entire collection of his work, the book showcases Redon’s varied oeuvre and illuminate the hold his particular kind of modernism has had on both twentieth-century and contemporary artists, from the aesthetics and thematics of Surrealism to the preoccupation with visualizing an interior world in the art of today.
