“Associated with the Symbolist movement, the art of Odilon Redon demonstrates a superb mastery of the pastel technique which draws it source from French 18th century art. The Impressionist painters such as Manet or Degas revived this medium, but Redon then developed a particular style which evoked a world inhabited by a deep sense of spirituality…The use of a arched window-like frame emphasises this space of transition between the physical and the spiritual world. The composition is completed by a majestic invasion of evanescent flowers. Flowers, as Redon described in his diary “…come from the convergence of two shores, that of representation, that of memory”. (A Soi-même. Journal (1867-1915), Paris, 1922, p.115).”
