REDON
La Tentation de Saint Antoine
FLAUBERT

Vollard, Paris, 1937
The lithographs by Redon remained hidden or lost for forty-two years before being acquired by Ambroise Vollard, the successful Parisian art dealer and publisher of Modern Illustrated Books (more on Vollard later). There are 220 copies of the book, size 13 x 17 inches and containing 206 pages. The illustrations are full-page powerful images closely interpreting the Flaubert text. The lithographs were executed by Redon between 1888 and 1896, but not published by Vollard until 1937.

Odilon Redon illustrated other books, the best-known being Le Juré by Edmond Picard and Le Maison Hantee by Edward Bullwer-Lytton. Some other books had only frontispieces designed by the artist.
