Item description for Symbolism by Rodolphe Rapetti & Deke Dusinberre...

The result of over ten years of research, this work offers a new analysis of European Symbolist art. It situates the Symbolist artistic movement in its historical context-industrial Europe at the end of the nineteenth century-and retraces its links with the evolution of ideas, particularly in literature. This work includes new, rare, and previously unpublished archival documents among its sources, alongside a large number of iconic and lesser-known Symbolist images, all carefully analyzed and beautifully reproduced in color.Symbolism had a huge impact on the arts and literature of its day, but also prefigured numerous aspects of modern art from Abstraction to Surrealism. Symbolist artists sought to merge the cultural spheres of art, painting, and poetry through color and line. Works by key figures-including Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Gustav Moreau, Ford Madox Brown, Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rosetti, and Paul Gauguin-illustrate the Symbolists' fascination with eroticism, perversity, mysticism, religion, and the occult.
Rodolphe Rapetti is the director of the Musée Henner in Paris and the author of numerous works on 19th-century art.

Reviews - What do customers think about Symbolism?

The Symbolism Movement and Its Influence in the 21st Century  May 15, 2008
"The Symbolist period was gripped by a profound doubt over the ability of Western Society to create, as it had in the past, its own conceptual framework." (p. 7) In this clear and systematic survey of the Symbolism movements, Rodolphe Rapetti lays bare the networks of thought that unite the aesthetic and philosophic minds of the Symbolists. This generously illustrated book serves a dual purpose - it records the important milestones of Symbolist theory and practice, and it throws open the door for 21st century artists to examine how a 21st century aesthetic can move forward on Symbolism's unfinished work.
