Je suis toujours la grande Isis! Nul n'a encore soulevé mon voile! Mon fruit est le soleil! (I Am Still the Great Isis! Nobody Has Ever Yet Lifted My Veil! My Fruit Is the Sun!) from La Tentation de Sainte-Antoine (The Temptation of Saint Anthony) (plate XVI)1896
The majority of Redon's lithographs are found in albums based on thematic or literary subjects. He was greatly inspired by such authors as Edgar Allan Poe and Gustave Flaubert, whose unusual sensibilities were well suited to the artist's own. Redon was so moved by Flaubert's 1874 prose poem The Temptation of Saint Anthony that he created three separate projects based on it.
