Odilon Redon: Beyond the Visible: The Art of Odilon Redon

Hardcover

Book Description
Caught between description and dream, the felt and the imagined, French artist Odilon Redon, whose career bridged the 19th and 20th centuries, transformed the natural world into nightmarish visions and bizarre fantasies. Closely allied with the Symbolist movement, Redon offered his own interpretations of literary, biblical, and mythological subjects; created a universe of strange hybrid creatures; and presented landscape in a singular way: we see grinning disembodied teeth, smiling spiders, melancholic floating faces, winged chariots, unfamiliar plant life, and velvety black or colored swirls of atmosphere. With a recent gift from the Ian Woodner family, The Museum of Modern Art is now the site of the most significant body of the artist's work outside France, and this book will showcase the full range of Redon's varied...

Book Description
One of the most expressive artists of the Symbolism movement, Odilon Redon (1840-1916) drew upon his own fantastic inner world to transform common subjects into strange, eerie images and to depict spiders and serpents, skeletons and skulls, gnomes and monsters--all in a distinctive style of controlled, delicate realism. Modern devotees regard Redon’s translation of the subconscious into visual reality as a precursor to Surrealism, and this modestly priced volume offers a rich compilation of the influential artist's graphic works. Its 209 illustrations--172 lithographs, plus 37 etchings and engravings--offer unforgettable scenes of fantasy and mystery.


Temptation of Saint Redon: Biography, Ideology, and Style in the Noirs of Odilon Redon
Stephen F. Eisenman
0226195481
December 1992
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Bristling with demons, grotesques, and bizarre apparitions, the graphic work of Odilon Redon has often seemed to be the product of a mind unhinged. In The Temptation of Saint Redon, Stephen F. Eisenman argues instead that these works are Redon's conscious and considered response to changing social realities--an attempt to find refuge from the forces of modernization in an imaginative world of the macabre and the fantastic. Eisenman's careful attention to the circumstances of Redon's life (1840-1916) allows him to bring into focus the interconnections between Redon's complex style and the culture and society of his time. Born and raised on a sixteenth-century estate near Bordeaux, Redon was immersed as a child in traditional rural culture. "I spent my entire childhood in the Médoc completely free, among...

Odilon Redon

From Library Journal
First published in 1913, this catalogue raisonn of Odilon Redon's prints has long been the standard work on the subject. A master printmaker, especially in lithography, Redon felt that the color black best expressed his ideas of the obscure and mysterious world of the imagination. This current edition of the 1913 catalog preserves Mellerio's original French text yet incorporates scholarship subsequent to the original edition. Included are essays by Daniel Catton Rich and Harold Joachim, two curators at the Art Institute of Chicago, the museum with the most complete collection of Redon's graphic work in the United States (purchased from Redon's widow in 1920). In 1929, Rich and William MacKee, also of the Art Institute, published a catalog of prints and states of prints by Redon that were unknown to...

“Clement...offers another admirable sourcebook...Readers interested in only one of the artists should examine the entire book, since the materials and topics overlap. For serious art collections, and for dyed-in-the-wool devotees of late-19th- and early-20th-century art history.”–Choice

Before and after the End of Time
Christine Smith (Editor)

March 2001
Paperback

Book Description
The end of the world—and of time—was expected by many to occur in the year 1000. This was based on references in the Bible, which also described in considerable architectural detail the Heavenly City of Jerusalem that was to come. The essays in this book look at the contrast between the heavenly architecture of prophecy and the Romanesque architecture that did appear. At the turn of the first millennium, spiritual and historical notions of time were held simultaneously. The powerful imagery of an ideal, translucent kingdom of heaven permeated the European imagination at the same time that the massive style of Romanesque architecture began to flourish. The essay "The Human Architect..." serves as an excellent introduction to Romanesque architecture with its revival of cut-stone masonry and the technological...
