This event has ended.

At a time when the Impressionists were concerned with how to portray landscapes and physical states of the outside world, the symbolist painter Odilon Redon (1840-1916) instead turned inwards to explore the infinite possibilities presented by his dreams. This exhibition offers viewers an overview of Redon’s fantastical visions through a selection of 130 works that also include pieces by artists who were profoundly influenced by him, such as Maurice Denis and Emile Bernard.

A particular highlight is the first public viewing of “Grand Bouquet”, his largest pastel painting that was recently acquired from an old chateau in France.

前半に襲い掛かる1880年代の「黒」の作品たち。
ルドンの灰汁の強いリトルグラフに身悶えながら進むと、色鮮やかな油絵が顔を出す。
安心したのもつかの間、やはりあの独特さはしばらく続き、見ているこちらがそろそろもうだめだと思った頃に現れる晩年に描いた花の作品たち。そして《グラン・ブーケ》

なぜだろう。あの《グラン・ブーケ》のある空間が、極楽のように感じた。「黒」の作品にちょっと怯えながら歩いていたからかもしれない。

けれどもぜひ、この《グラン・ブーケ》のある空間、理由はわからないが安心できるあの場所をもっと多くの人に体験してもらいたい。

目玉から出発したけど眼をとじて、パステルで花開く。《樹》の葉っぱもチャーミング。絵と詩のつながりも少し見える。
