Redons work is divided into two Hauptphasen: a black and a onecolored.
In its black phase Redon in coal designs and pressure diagram dedicated itself to the human Unterbewusstsein with its fears and Albträumen and created thereby urgent, partial uncanny works. Particularly is the design of a black Raben admits, to that as messenger of deatharises, as well as the representation of a large vielbeinigen spider, on whose black behaartem body a face is to be seen. A further important topic of the nightmare pictures are large eyes, which regard the viewer. The design of an individual eye is exemplary that thoseCar of a hot-air balloon forms, as well as an egg with a face that squeezed into an egg cup fear of place - dream represents.
In its second work phase Redon broke elements completely with its black work and began in paintings of large coloredness both outthe antique one and from nature idealizes to represent. Admit are the picture of a Quadriga floating in colored clouds as well as the abstracted representations of Quallen, shells and other sea animals. These multilayered pictures of an idea world live by the depth of the irisierendenInk mist.
Although time-resembled with the painters of the Impressionismus developed, Redons work is nevertheless completely independent and different. Its pictures were close in contents and form to the expressionism and the Surrealismus, for a long time before it these art trends gave. Many later artists appointeditself therefore on Redon as an outrider of the unrealism in the painting and an art, which concern themselves with the psyche of humans.
