James Anno, associate curator of European art, is one of the judges. He shares insight on a work of art highlighted this year (image #2 in the slideshow):
“Odilon Redon was a French Symbolist painter, printmaker, and draftsman best known for the dreamlike paintings he created in the early 20th century. Redon was influenced by Japanese art, and he was inspired by nature. In Two Young Girls among Flowers, Redon depicts two girls in an abstract setting amidst flowers, creating an evocative vision of nature.”
