Vurlaines Symbolist manifesto: Poetic Art
Characteristics of Symbolist verse:
-Musicality, rhythem, fluidity, evocation
-Imbalance-it is more vigorous, not fixed and adopted by Romantic poets like Hugo
Symbolisim In Art
Expression of a reality beyond evidence
VIsual perceptions; spiritual aspects, allusions, and symbols
Exploration of synthesies
interest in imagination and dreams
firm refusal of contemporary subjects and social realism
thereby the content would be from poetry...
Gustave Moreau, Salomé Dancing Before Herod (Symbolism)
Moreau “the painter of Salos”
Salo symbol of lasciousness
“a magic air in which the smell of poison lingers” (JoMaria de Hédia)
Perfumes shown through light, shadow which shows scents
Salome is only visible on the left hand side in front of the column
On the right, a figure representing a eunice who was a soldier
there is a heavy dark atmosphere
the lighting seems to come from above
there is a dusty red and gold
The only distinctive character in the picture is the princess, her crown, her skin in a
milky and alabaster white and she is curved but slender
the light of her body is emanated
she appears to be suspended in space
She is provocative
But she is virginally appearance
She has blonde frizzy hair
She is covered in veils, a symbolist element
Why is the picture symbolist?
The imprecise outline of figures is not clear
The diffuse of light give us mere suggestions of figures, nothing clear we can only
guess as in other paintings there seems to be her mother standing behind her
The formal and chromatic structures
There was some symbols inserted in the painting such as an animal on the column, a
mythological creature which symbolized desire that seduces but not gratify therefore
the name Chimera
On top of the emperors throne an eagle showing military triumph (top of social
pyramid)

In Salomes hand is a lotus flower which is a symbol for oblivion and an evil woman in
other cultures
Odilion Redon (1840 -1910) Dan le Reve
His paintings were symbolic
The painting showed the image of what he thought the title was
Pubis De Chavannes (1824- 1898)
Allegorical works
Celebration of personal and civic virtues
Fears of..
As in Poor Fisherman, there is nothing distinctive about his characters
Henri Rousseau
(1844-1910)
Showed an exotic world
borrowed from African culture and Art
Impressionists
The name is Derived from Monets painting Impression of a Sunrise, and was first used
in a mocking way but soon lost its connotation
There was a new light in the painting,and no European painters were successful in
painting light
New painting techniques included purer and lighter colors and strokes applied directly
on the painting as opposed to blending the colors on the pallet, they are blended by the
eye of the beholder
This style of painting was nothing compared to the academic style of painting
There was a new vocabulary in the Impressionist style
Impressionist were the first to accept women into their group such as Marie
Bracquemond
One technique which Marie used in her painting On the Terrace at Sèvres is to choose
one color, green, and use different strokes of different shades of green
On Monet, Rue Montorgueil (June 30 1878), she used a different technique of using
different strokes of different colors
The Impressionist Group
Members: Claude Monet(leader), Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley,
Mary Casset, and Berthe Morisot
They worked together and exhibited together and learned from each other and spent
time helping each other
