Subject: 1958.6 Redon

Dear Laura,

Would you please refine our EmbArk record for 1958.6?

This lithograph is from the second series The Temptation of St. Anthony (La Tentation de saint Antoine) that Redon published in 1896 (current date is inaccurate). The work is plate V, and illustrates the passage of Flaubert’s novel La Tentation de saint Antoine that reads “The flowers fall and the head of the python appears."

Thanks for making this correction.
