Odilon Redon (1840-1916)
Odilon Redon is a native of Bordeaux. In 1875 he entered the shadowy world of charcoal and the lithographer's stone. The overall effect, imbued with a melancholy passivity, stood outside of trends and movements, as nocturnal, autumnal, and lunar. In the 1890s, commanded by his dreams, he began to use the luminous, musical tones of pastel and oils. The thematic content of his work then became densely mythical, brimming with newfound hope and light.

The Chariot of Apollo, 1905–16
Metropolitan Museum of Art

Between 1905 and 1916 Redon devoted a number of oils, pastels, and watercolors to the theme of horses of the sun, driven by Apollo or Phaėthon. The present painting is closely related to an oil of the same subject of about 1905 (Petit Palais, Paris). It may be a sketch for the larger work.
