Symbolism by Michael Gibson( Book )
24 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 625 libraries worldwide
"To clothe the idea in perceptible form" proposed the poet Jean Moteas in his 1886 Manifesto of Symbolism. It was in France and Belgium, the cradles of literary Symbolism, that Symbolist painting was born. It plunged headlong into the cultural space opened up by the poetry of Baudelaire and Mallarme and by the operas of Wagner. Symbolist painters sought not to represent appearances but to express "the idea", and the imaginary therefore plays an important part in their work. "Dream", was their credo; they execrated, with a fanatical hatred, impressionism, realism, naturalism, and the scientistic. The main principle of Symbolism, that of "correspondences", was to attain harmony between all the different arts, or even to realise the total work of art (Gesamtkunstwerk) that Wagner had dreamt of creating

"Michael Gibson's perceptive eye and limpid prose lead the viewer effortlessly through the story of Christ's passion as told in Peter Bruegel's Way to Calvary - an astonishing work, laced with allusions to the harsh political and religious climate King Philip II of Spain imposed on the artist's native land." "Having sketched out the historical background, Gibson goes on to argue the painting's relevance to the contemporary world. In doing so, he develops an innovative theory of image and myth."--BOOK JACKET

It's a one of a kind marvel of art historical investigation that brings a great painting to life
