Odilon Redon - Vase of Flowers (Pink Background) c. 1906
His choice of colour and subject matter in the second part of his career lead to Redon being considered a precursor to Dadaism and Surrealism.] According to Surrealist André Masson, his use of excessively bright colours in his flower pastels, as well as his choice of depicting uncommon or imaginary species renders this works be "released from stylized naturalism", thus demonstrating the "endless possibilities of lyrical chormatics".
Having worked almost exclusively in black and white for more than two decades, Redon revealed his gifts as a colorist in the luminous pastels and paintings he made after 1895. In this bouquet, such identifiable flowers as poppies and cornflowers, which he had studied attentively, emerge as fanciful re-creations, in jewel-like patches of color against a misty, undefined field. Late flower pictures such as this one remain true to Redon’s artistic aim: "to place the logic of the visible at the service of the invisible."
