Odilon Redon, Christ and the Samaritan Woman, ca. 1895

Odilon Redon, Christ and the Samaritan Woman, ca. 1895

spot! guided interpretation of a work - Städel Collection

Odilon Redon paints the Samaritan Woman and Christ immersed in a kind of moiré light, devoid of references in time and space and relieved of all narrative implications.  An isolated figure but a great name in the history of modern art, Redon was a visionary artist capable of dipping into the world of dreams, initially through drawings and etchings predominantly in black and white, and later trough the use of color interwoven with symbolic values, as we can see in this picture which is one of her best-known works.
