Orpheus, c. 1903-1910. Creator: Odilon Redon (French, 1840-1916) Featured Print

Orpheus, c. 1903-1910. Creator: Odilon Redon (French, 1840-1916)

Orpheus, c. 1903-1910. Redon's oeuvre can be roughly divided into two sections: the black works of his early career—when he used charcoal and lithography—and the coloured works of his mature period—when, prompted by a yearning for colour, he transitioned to pastel and oil painting. As a drawing material, pastel is similar to charcoal; both are capable of rendering sharp lines and dense forms, as well as diffused edges and powdery evanescence. Here, Redon utilized the velvety tones of pastel to create an image of hypnotic suggestiveness. The head of the poet and musician Orpheus floats on his lyre down the River Hebrus, while a glittering Mount Parnassus—the home of Apollo and the Muses—soars heavenward.

Before the Race, c. 1887-1889. Creator: Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917) Featured Print

Before the Race, c. 1887-1889. Creator: Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917)

Before the Race, c. 1887-1889. Degas returned to the theme of horse and rider time and again throughout his career. Scholars believe that he executed the first version of this composition of four jockeys on horseback in a charcoal and pastel drawing. Several years later, he traced the composition, reversing its orientation to create the highly finished Cleveland pastel. The palette is intensified, the distance between the second and third jockeys is increased, and the foliage along the horizon has been added to suggest a lush spring day. In the final version, Degas repeated the Cleveland composition, but cropped it much more closely. The jockeys loom close to the foreground, their faces abstracted in complex layers of pastel that achieved a new level of freedom and energy of execution.
