Previously at the Petit Palais in Paris, the exhibition ‘Fantastic! Visionary prints from Goya to Redon' has been further enhanced in Bordeaux with 15 etchings by Goya (who died in Bordeaux in 1828). It also includes the only known copy of Bulls Fighting (1825) as well as 14 prints by Rodolphe Bresdin, and 28 by Odilon Redon. The chronological exhibition is divided into four periods: the precursors (Dürer, Piranesi, and Goya), the Romantic generation (1830-1850 with Delacroix, Boulanger, and Grandville), the ‘New Romanticism' (1850 to 1870 including Bracquemond, Bresdin, and Doré), and ‘post-Romanticism' (1870-1890 centring on Ensor, Redon, and Rops). Lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts deliver a romantic feeling of the fantastic, considered at the time as a literal perception and representation of the world.
