  • We knew bad Odilon Redon and we appreciate the Museum of the Fine Arts of Quimper. So we hastened to go and visit the exhibition dedicated to the landscapes of Odilon Redon. If the drawings are very successful, the paintings are somewhat disturbing: very bare, without hardly any characters or even life. "In the last room," the tree on a yellow background "fact exception and struck both by its size and its warm colors. We took advantage of this visit to see "The bridge", Yves Tanguy painting, offered recently to the Museum by J. Prévert's daughter.
