  • Symbolism | Art Movement

    Symbolism flourished as an art movement between 1885 and 1910. Emerging in France, Symbolist art rejected both Realism and Impressionism and served to extend the Romantic tradition of mysticism and intense emotion.

  • Through the effective use of line, color and contour, the Symbolists were driven by a desire to create evocative images rather than works that were directly descriptive. The symbolist painters mined mythology and dream imagery for a visual language of the soul.Symbolism influenced Expressionism, Art Nouveau, and Surrealism
