Around 1900 young artists exhibited at various independent societies. Les Vingt in Brussels was such an association, of which both James Ensor and Jan Toorop were members and where Redon was invited to show his work. His dreamy, visionary art is part of Symbolism. Here he depicted the fatal drowning of Ophelia, the sister of Hamlet from the Shakespearean tragedy of the same title.
