Redon was a leading Symbolist painter of fin de siècle France.

Redon’s eccentric works on paper were immortalized by the author Joris-Karl Huysmans (1848–1907) in his decadent novel À Rebours (1884). A failed architect, Redon studied briefly with Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904), but a far more formative influence was the draughtsman and printmaker Rodolphe Bresdin (1822–85).
