Emerging from Romantic traditions in France during the late-nineteenth-century, artistic Symbolism was more a philosophy that explored mysticism, mythology, and metaphysics than a style of work. Its practitioners filled their canvases with dreamlike images as they attempted to convey a message as much as create a picture.
This superb collection of art cards features haunting works by 22 symbolist painters, among them The Nightmare, by Henry Fuseli; The Cyclops, by Odilon Redon; Edvard Munch's Jealousy; Gustave Moreau's Oedipus and the Sphinx; as well as works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Gustav Klimt, Fernand Khnopff, George Frederick Watts, and others.
Ideal for adding to a personal collection, these masterworks in miniature are ideal for sending brief messages to anyone who admires symbolist art.
