Lected painter of the fantastic Gustave Moreau their most obvious expression was 'Art Nouveau' a style closely interwoven with sinuous and half unconscious eroticism Philippe Julian takes the reader on a conducted tour through the bizarre symbolism of this half forgotten world introducing him to a large number of writers and artists Many of these artistsMoreau Toorop the et magiciensL'art fin MOBI #242 brilliant half Balinese half Dutch painter and draftsman the French Odilon Redon the great master of Symbolist art the Viennese Klimt and the Belgian Khnopffhave been known for some time. Informative entertaining and frustrating 101 guide to the French painters of the 1880s and 90s who were influenced by the Pre Raphaelites and reactive against Impressionism and realism Among the familiar artists are many discussed in a paragraph or two often teasingly and incompletely The author does a fine job of recreating the era through contemporary uotes from Huysmans Wilde Verlaine and other litterateurs and Jullian s history and critical appraisal set the art in brilliant context The most frustrating element of this book though is a paucity of color plates and the apparent disconnection between the placement of line illustrations and the surrounding text A picture described in loving detail may be apparently randomly inserted in grainy black and white 30 pages away from its description or may not be included at all An index of artists and works helps a little but for a book primarily concerned with visionary colorful art the presentation is sorely lacking Fortunately the elusive paintings can be found with a few clicks online and the book makes an excellent guide for an afternoon of online gallery hopping
