Decadence and Dark Dreams

Decadence and Dark Dreams

Belgian Symbolism
Herausgeber: Ralph Gleis

The remarkable feature of Belgian Symbolism is its predilection for the morbid and the bizarre. Death and decay became leitmotifs in art. In around 1900, artists tried to link a new mysticism with an extravagant and precious style. The central figure in this context was the femme fatale as an expression of excess and lust, often paired with echoes of the esoteric and the demonic. Many stimuli for European Symbolism had their origins in Belgium. This wide-ranging and lavishly illustrated volume examines this phenomenon.
