Redon (1840-1916) was an exceptional draftsman, lithographer, pastelist, painter, and decorator, as well as a late bloomer and a wholly original thinker who found inspiration in diverse forms of art and literature and in the revolutionary realms of psychology and science. His work has been sadly neglected since his first retrospective 100 years ago, but his second retrospective has proved to be an exciting and revelatory event, as evidenced by this superb volume.

Odilon Redon, Douglas W. Druick.

Perhaps for that reason it is much more comprehensive than most I've read. Containing essays by a number of authors, the book traces Redon's development as an artist from his childhood drawing lessons through his later years when he grew in stature to become one of the most important artists of the Symbolist movement.

Bertrand-Jean Redon, called Odilon after his creole mother, was born in 1840 and died in 1916. Odilon Redon, The Smiling Spider, 1881. The giant winged head looking down on the diminutive boat clearly illustrates Redon’s preference for the unseen forces he believed lay below the surface of appearances, his intention being to make these known through his imaginative art. The spider, with ten legs rather than the usual eight, smiles mischievously as it performs a lopsided dance.

The work of French Symbolist painter Odilon Redon has long been seen as a direct link between the 19th century and the development of modern art. Now Douglas W. Druick, Searle curator of European paintings at The Art Institute of Chicago, has gathered more than 500 color and black-and-white reproductions of the artist's well-known and more obscure works.

.... and wonderful seller

I was impressed how quickly this book came to me in Australia and the condition of the book was like new and very reasonably priced. For serious fans of Odilon Redon, like myself this book is essential. It covers all his artwork compared to similar artwork of the time. You can see how he influenced other artists with his style during his career. There are pictures of his work and similar other artists work on the same page. Studying his methods and subject matter I refer to this book often and is a must for any person serious about getting to know the life and work of Odilon Redon.

The reproductions in this book are not very good at all. The color reproduced is dull, nothing like the vibrancy of the actual work of Redon, especially in latter years. Moreover, there aren't that many color plates unless you consider sepia to be color. The great bulk of the contents of the book is text, which would be fine if it weren't in a large extremely heavy and overpriced format.

This monograph should not be dismissed, in fact it is in my opinion one of the most thorough if not the most thorough and really delivers on many levels, I have to take exception with a previous reviewer's comment on the reproductions as there are many(500) and very decent with no complaints from me at all.If one has interest in Redon I can not praise this volume more highly, essential.

I bought the book titled Odilon Redon, Prince of Dreams, in order to have a visual record of his art work. This book contains much of his significant work. Although some of the images are small, the reproduction quality is fine enough for close study. In addition to cataloging the work; this book examines Redon's life and his importance within the symbolist art movement; and provides an in-depth dissection of Redon's process of applying color to his works. In fact, the authors provide in great detail a near "archaeological" dig down through the layers of color that Redon applied to his painting, pastel, and charcoal drawing surfaces. The reader is rewarded with an exploration of the technique that made Redon one of the most accomplished artists within the symbolist movement. Copyright. 2009. John Kurtz

An excellent, detailed overview of Redon's career and artistic output, this book tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the artist's life and times. The only disappointment I felt was the lack of real insight into his work. Fabulous reproductions of the artist's incredible works tantalize as you search for interpretation in the text. Historical fact is all you get however. Somehow this seemed ironic in a book about a "Prince of Dreams". An absolute must have for any lover of Redon's art - the most complete published source - and the reproductions are truly phenomenal!
