Redon’s lithographic album la Maison hantée, inspired by the English ghost story, Haunted and the Haunters: or, The House and the Brain (1859) by Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, has been critisised for being too illustrational and lacking originality. Yet, when the images are compared with the captions and the French translation of the original text of the novel by René Philipon, who orderd the album to Rodin, it becomes evident that the painter selected the objects that the narrator actually saw in the haunted house—the parts that do not describe story elements. To achieve an effect of ambiguity, Redon avoided narrative depictions of the scenes and in fact rejected illustrating the story.
