All of these pieces are lithographs by a French painter/printmaker named Odilon Redon, who produced work in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  I had seen a couple of his paintings in the past and didn’t care too much for them, but I stumbled upon an exhibit of his prints in the Boston MFA just last week and was super surprised by how dark and surreal they were. I adore the first one: ‘La Mort: Mon Ironie Depasse Toutes les Autres’ (Death: My Irony Surpasses All Others) - 1888
