May 30,2008 - The Cyclops

Out of all the mythical creatures from Greek mythology, the cyclops has to be my favourite. Here the cyclops seems very gentle, very kind. Almost as if it has originated from a fairy tale rather than from Greek mythology. The painting as a whole has to be one of my favourites from Redon. The deep rich hues of the flowers in contrast to the woman hiding from the seemingly gentle cyclops in fear(?) has no doubt helped in the painting appeal to me. And with this I will close my posts on Redon (well atleast for today).
