Beyond the Visible: The Art of Odilon Redon
October 30, 2005–January 23, 2006
Beyond the Visible: The Art of Odilon Redon presents the full range of Redon's achievements—mysterious charcoal "noirs," luminous pastels, richly textured canvases, dramatically shaded lithographs—through MoMA's unparalleled collection of his work. Highlighting a major gift of over 100 pieces from The Ian Woodner Family Collection, the exhibition shows the issues at stake in Redon's cultural world, explores the beginnings of modernism, and illuminates the hold that the artist's vision has had on art of the twentieth century and today.
The publication accompanying the exhibition is made possible by The Ian Woodner Family Collection.
