I’ve always loved pansies. Every once in a while I find a few pressed between the pages of a book, long forgotten. My latest discovery was found inside The National Gallery of Art, Washington D. C. by John Walker. Between pages 518 and 519. On page 518 is image number 783, Pansies. Signed. c. 1905. Pastel, by Odilon Redon. Serendipity. This drawing is loosely based on that pastel drawing.
