Symbolist art in context by Michelle Facos( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Symbolist art movement of the late nineteenth century forms an important bridge between Impressionism and Modernism. But because Symbolism, more than the two movements it links, emphasizes ideas over objects and events, it has suffered from vague and conflicting definitions. In Symbolist Art in Context, Michelle Facos offers a clearly written, comprehensive, and accessible description of this challenging subject. Reaching back into Romanticism for Symbolism's origins, Facos argues that Symbolism enabled artists (including Munch and Gauguin) to confront an increasingly uncertain and complex world--one to which pessimists responded with themes of decadence and degeneration and optimists with idealism and reform."--Amazon

The symbolist roots of modern art by Michelle Facos( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays collected here, which consider artists from France to Russia and Finland to Greece, argue persuasively that Symbolist approaches to content, form, and subject helpted to shape twentieth-century Modernism. Well-known figures such as Kandinsky, Khnopff, Matisse, and Munch are considered alongside lesser-known artists such as Fini, Gyzis, Koen, and Vrubel in order to demonstrate that Symbolist art did not constitute an isolated moment of wild experimentation, but rather an inspirational point of departure for twentieth-century developments"--
