This week's art inspired fashion post looks to a portrait by Odilon Redon, whose beautiful contrast of saturated cobalt with the ethereal mint dress of the girl, mirrors one of the more lovely and unique color trends of Fall 2012. There's something dreamy about this painting, as there is in all of Odilon Redon's paintings, and he himself described his work as undefinable, "My drawings inspire, and are not to be defined. They place us, as does music, in the ambiguous realm of the undetermined."
Redon created this portrait at the age of 70, just six years before he died, and only started using color in his paintings and pastels full time during the last 16 years of his life; a reminder that the best work can sometimes happen at the end, not the beginning of life.
Are you a fan of the pairing of soft mint with deeper cobalt?
