Odilon Redon lithographs

La mort: mon ironie dépasse toutes les autres! (1889).

Two samples from a collection of Odilon Redon etchings lithographs at Gallica, an archive I’ve only recently begun to look at. A shame that the larger images scale up the content and the empty margin, often leaving a very small picture in the centre not much bigger than thumbnail size. Oh, well… On the plus side there’s a portrait I hadn’t seen before of Des Esseintes from Huysmans’ À Rebours, the book which in 1884 introduced Redon’s work to a wider public. Via BibliOdyssey, without whom, etc.

Et là-bas l’IDOLE ASTRALE, l’apothéose (1891).
