Odilon Redon (1840-1916), L’Aile, 1893, on Chine applique, signed in pencil lower left. Reference: Mellerio 122, only state, from the edition of 25, printed by Becquet, Paris. In very good condition, the matrix flawless, with margins, 12 5/8 x 9 3/4, the sheet 15 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches.

A fine fresh vibrant impression of this iconic image.

It is interesting to note that 100 years ago two galleries at the 1913 Armory Show were dominated by the work of Odilon Redon, an artist show organizers Walt Kuhn and Arthur B. Davies encountered in Europe and decided to feature. Although a full room was given to Redon’s work at the Salon d’Automne in 1904, and he was recognized as an influence on Nabis artists such as Bonnard and Denis, he was still virtually unknown in the United States. Redon was well received, both critically and financially.

Lillie Bliss, encouraged by Davies, purchased a number of Redon works at the Armory Show, including the impression of L’Aile which is now at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
