Paris.- In exhibition organised by the Grand Palais, the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée Fabre, Montpellier, the Grand Palais, Galeries National in Paris Presents Odilon Redon: The Prince of Dreams. The exhibition is on view until 20 June, after which it transfers to the Musée Fabre in Montpellier, from 7 July to 16 October 2011. Although he was a contemporary of the Impressionists (he took part in the group’s last exhibition in 1886), Odilon Redon (Bordeaux 1840 – Paris 1916) remains the champion of mystery and the subconscious in a period which focused on reality and objectivity.
