8IE-1886-138+hc, Eventail
Nor Moffett, nor Berson, nor Wildenstein suggests that there was a work exhibited outside the catalogue (=hc). But Victor Fournel (1886/06/10) reviewed ‘I especially recommend a painted fan with transverse and longitudinal stains, which obviously have some meaning in the author’s idea, even though it’s absolutely impossible, I’m not saying to see it, but to guess a being or an object in it, and the fantastic visions of a gentleman pursued by nightmares that he’s mistakenly trying to tell and so should we, in addition to an incredible Salome, an irresistible comic’s Tentaion.’ In the catalogue it is only Morisot who exihibited fans, but note that he is speaking of a male artist and at the end refers to no. 132 en 129 of Redon, so maybe Redon exhibited a fan outside the catalogue. 

 

Odilon Redon at the Salon:
There also was a Redon exhibiting at the Salon in 1848/ 64/ 87/ 88/ 89/ 90/ 99/ 04. And a Redon exhibiting at the SNBA in 1903 + 06 and at the SdA 1904. (iR1)

S1867- 2690, Paysage; eau-forte
Compare: 8IE-1886-131 and 8IE-1886-138 with the same title (but no etchings). Wildenstein indicates this work is tittles ‘Le Gué’ (Eng.: the ford) (aR6=iR189=R182IV,p329).

Wildenstein indicates that the painting Roland à Roncevaux was accepted, but not exhibited =R182,CR1044. It was also exhibited in Bordeaux 1870-540, Roland (aR6=iR189=R182IV,p329).
