Blog #3 Head of Orpheus Floating on the Waters

This painting was created by Odilon Redon, it is a charcoal on paper, and it could be found in the Kroller-Muller Museum.  This painting shows a head where the viewer can distinctly see the nose and lips of this person.  It seems like the heads eye is closed.  The head seems to be the head of a man, but you cannot be certain.  I chose this painting because the use of black and white color makes it seem mysterious and creepy.  Redon used symbolism in his paintings to translate his own dreams and emotions.
