At almost the same period as the Impressionists, a group of painters appeared who were concerned solely with the world of the imagination. They were known as the Symbolists, and their representative figure was Redon. His command of pastels as a material in his late years was such as to render colors almost glittering. In Greek mythology, Pegasus was a winged horse which played active roles in rescuing Andromeda and slaying the Chimera (a monster).
