Flore d’Odilon Redon

This exhibition is built around the museum’s stunning Grand Bouquet, a large pastel showpiece from the dining room at the Château de Domecy in France. The Musée d’Orsay loaned the other 15 decorative panels from the château for the exhibition. The curators did a nice job of helping the viewer mentally place the panels in the dining room. In addition there are early charcoals and lithographs and later colorful flowers, butterflies and other flora and fauna.
