Known for his dark, velvety charcoal drawings and lithographs, Redon began to work predominantly in oil and pastel after 1900, thus enlisting color in his explorations of the realm of dreams and the imagination. This scarf features the painting, "Vase of Flowers." Redon used his knowledge of botany as a starting point, but gave the flowers a sensuous form and heightened luminosity. In this way he fulfilled his ambition of conveying nature not objectively, but "as seen in a dream."
