Il tombe vers l'albime la tête en vas

Odilon Redon (French, 1840-1916)


Then St. Anthony envisions the Greek gods of Olympus.  Apollo, like the other gods, has been forgotten and passes away.  He falls from his heavenly chariot; the strings of his lyre broken.

"These drawings passed all bounds, transgressing in a thousand ways the established laws of pictorial art, utterly fantastic and revolutionary, the work of a mad and morbid genius."
-Karl Huysmans
