Odilon Redon: Bouquet of Flowers 500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Odilon Redon (French, 1840–1916) Bouquet of Flowers, c. 1900–1905
Odilon Redon's exuberant flowers are the evolution of a career that began with monochromatic works and ended with his glowing flower paintings. In making works such as this, he referenced the extensive garden he and his wife maintained, but depicted bouquets of fantasy. Using pastels, he duplicated both the softness of a flower’s petals and the iridescence of a painted vase in Bouquet of Flowers.

Odilon Redon was a French symbolist painter, printmaker, draughtsman and pastellist. Early in his career, both before and after fighting in the Franco-Prussian War, he worked almost exclusively in charcoal and lithography, works referred to as noirs. He started gaining recognition after his drawings were mentioned in the 1884 novel À rebours (Against Nature) by Joris-Karl Huysmans. During the 1890s he began working in pastel and oils, which quickly became his favourite medium, abandoning his previous style of noirs completely after 1900. He also developed a keen interest in Hindu and Buddhist religion and culture, which increasingly showed in his work. He is perhaps best known today for the "dreamlike" paintings created in the first decade of the 20th century, which were heavily inspired by Japanese art and which, while continuing to take inspiration from nature, heavily flirted with abstraction. His work is considered a precursor to both Dadaism and Surrealism.
