Overview
Emotional intelligence: A synthesis of form and feeling First applied to the poems of Stephane Mallarme and Paul Verlaine in 1886, the term symbolist was soon applied to the visual arts where a realistic depiction of the natural world gave way toimaginary dream scenes of psychological, sexual, and mystical content.Symbolism was a broad international phenomenon but particularly present in France, where painters such as Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon turned their back on realism, naturalism, and impressionism to populate their canvases with esoteric, often erotic, visions. In place of Monet's light-suffused landscapes or the frank working class subjects of Courbet, the Symbolists turned to figures fromliterature, the Bible, and Greek mythologyto express experiences of love, fear, anguish, death, sexual awakening, and unrequited desire.With featured work from Edward Burne-Jones, Puvis de Chavannes, Gustav Klimt, James Abbot McNeill Whistler, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon and many more, this book introduces Symbolism s great reach, intensity, and influence. About the Series: Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Genre series features: a detailed illustrated introduction plus a timeline of the most important political, cultural and social events that took place during that period a selection of the most important works of the epoch, each of which is presented on a 2-page spread with a full-page image and with an interpretation of the respective work, plus a portrait and brief biography of the artist approximately 100 colour illustrations with explanatory captions "
