What do you make of this painting? The Yellow Cape (1895) is a pastel painting by Odilon Redon (1840-1916) a French Symbolist painter. His paintings look like nightmares and mysteries, and he did this on purpose. In his own words "My drawings inspire, and are not to be defined. They place us, as does music, in the realm of the undefined." Redon got inspiration from all sorts of religions, and he let his imagination run wild. His works seem to be inspired by a certain sadness and depression, though he channeled these feelings in a positive way by making these kinds of intriguing paintings. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #Pastel #PastelDrawing #PastelonPaper #FrenchArt #FrenchArtist #FrenchPainter #Symbolism #Mystery #Mysterious #Nightmare #Yellow #Scary #Strange #Symbolic #Dream #Fantasy
