Lumière: Lithographs by Odilon Redon

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

This exhibition explores the theme of light in the lithographs of the French Symbolist artist Odilon Redon (1840–1916). Redon's innovative approach to printmaking allowed him to create ambiguous yet deeply suggestive images through the exploration of the expressive potential of light and dark.

This online version went live to coincide with the gallery display 'Lumière: Lithographs by Odilon Redon' (22 September 2009–10 January 2010).
