Description

Une Femme revêtue du soleil is the sixth lithograph in a suite of twelve that pertains to the Apocalypse of Saint John and was published by Ambroise Vollard. Here, Redon created with black lithographic crayon areas from very light gray to the deepest and purest black . . .. Redon's art is an art of the mind, of imagination and poetic feeling. He gave form and substance to dreams, in the symbolist sense, by opening doors to the unseen world.
