Showcase: Odilon Redon

The Chariot of Apollo (1905—1916) by Odilon Redon

French symbolist and post-impressionist painter Odilon Redon (1840–1916) was passionate about art from a young age. Following his fathers wishes he took up architecture, but after failing exams he continued with his love of drawing. His interest in Hindu and Buddhist religion blended with a passion for Japonism influenced the astounding drawings we see today.
