The Musée Fabre presents a major exhibition dedicated to Odilon Redon, following on from the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris. Redon was a contemporary of the Impressionists. He cultivated an art of the imaginary during a period which was particularly inspired by the observation of real life.

The exhibition progresses from the hallucinatory visions of the “Noirs’’ to the stunning colours of his portraits and bouquets of flowers. The scenography enhances their refinement and mystery. Highlights include the unique reconstruction of the Chateau de Domecy dining room interior, decorated with “flowers from dreams” which epitomise Redon’s entire poetic imagination.
