- Full Description
Bound in red velvet with gold-stamped lettering to conjure the evocative atmosphere of the French Salons, this catalog features essays about the history, themes and often spiritual aims of the Rose+Croix, a hot bed of creativity in the 1890s. It gathered an international group of Symbolist artists around a shared refutation of Realist aesthetics and philosophy, frequently in favor of the ideal and the mystical. The richly illustrated volume also contains 46 color plates, entries on each exhibited artist and a bibliography of contemporary sources on Symbolist art.
Mystical Symbolism: The Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris, 1892–1897 accompanied the first-ever museum presentation examining the Salon de la Rose+Croix, a series of annual exhibitions established by eccentric French author, critic, occultist and Rosicrucian Joséphin Péladan. Among the participants were Pierre Amédée Marcel-Béronneau, Jean Delville, Fernand Khnopff, Charles Maurin, Armand Point, Alexandre Séon and Félix Vallotton.
Also here is work and coverage of Jan Toorop, Carlos Schwabe, Georges de Feure, and Gustave Moreau.
Among all the comic book artists, Barry Windsor-Smith most closely studied and was inspired by the work of the Symbolists. His works such as Cygnus, Artemis and Apollo, and the entire Sybyla Portfolio channeled these symbolist illustrators and presented these wonderful decadent themes newly interpreted by Barry in his fine-art period of print and portfolio making.
