            Land of symbols: Where myth, death, and desire reignIt was in France and Belgium, the cradles of literary Symbolism, that Symbolist painting was born. In the late 19th century, painters such as Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon rejected realism, naturalism, and impressionism to exp...ress instead the emotion or idea. In place of Monet s light-suffused landscapes or the frank working-class subjects of Courbet came imaginary dream scenes of psychological, sexual, and mystical content.This generously sized book explores the Symbolists rich pool of inspiration as they strove to express such charged experiences as love, fear, anguish, death, sexual awakening, and unrequited desire. Through literature, the Bible, and Greek mythology, we see how the movement s protagonists fused erudite references with personal and private significance in the restless pursuit of a feeling-laden form.With featured work from Edward Burne-Jones, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Gustav Klimt, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon and many more, the book attests to the favorite motifs as well as the stylistic variety of Symbolist practice. In one work we find muted washes of pastel color, in another ornate textural details. More than once, we encounter the virgin or femme fatale, Symbolism s female archetypes par excellence.Through this rich, sometimes obscure, but always evocative journey, we come to appreciate an essential 19th-century movement which not only spawned disciples around the world, but also paved the way for some of the leading modernist developments.

            Around 1800, philosophers, writers, and artists revolted against rationalism and began to propagate a new vision they described as romantic -one that believed in the goodness of humanity, the divine spirit of nature, and that saw the artist as a profoundly individual creator. Thi...s comprehensive introduction gathers an essay situating the genre...

            The Europeans: Three Lives and the Making of a Cosmopolitan Culture (Paperback)

            The Europeans is a richly enthralling, panoramic cultural history of nineteenth-century Europe, told through the intertwined lives of three remarkable people: a great singer, Pauline Viardot, a great writer, Ivan Turgenev, and a great connoisseur, Pauline's husband Louis. Their p...assionate, ambitious lives were bound up with an astonishing array of writers, composers and painters all trying to make their way through the exciting, prosperous and genuinely pan-European culture that came about as a result of huge economic and technological change. This culture - through trains, telegraphs and printing - allowed artists of all kinds to exchange ideas and make a living, shuttling back and forth across the whole continent from the British Isles to Imperial Russia, as they exploited a new cosmopolitan age. The Europeans is Orlando Figes' masterpiece. Surprising, beautifully written, it describes huge changes through intimate details, little-known stories and through the lens of Turgenev and the Viardots' touching, strange love triangle. Events which we now see as central to European high culture are made completely fresh, allowing the reader to revel in the sheer precariousness with which the great salons, premieres and bestsellers came into existence.
