A beautifully illustrated investigation of Neo-Impressionism in late 19th-century Paris and Brussels

This stunning catalogue explores the creative exchange between Neo-Impressionist painters and Symbolist writers and composers in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Symbolism, with its emphasis on subjectivity, dream worlds, and spirituality, has often been considered at odds with Neo-Impressionism’s approach to portraying color and light. This book repositions the relationship between these movements and looks at how Neo-Impressionist artists such as Maximilien Luce, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Henry van de Velde created evocative landscape and figural scenes by depicting emptiness, contemplative moods, Arcadia, and other themes. Beautifully illustrated with 130 color images, this book reveals the vibrancy and depth of the Neo-Impressionist movement in Paris and Brussels in the late 19th century.
Cornelia Homburg is an independent art historian and curator living in France. Paul Smith is professor of art history at Warwick University. Laura D.

‘The scholarly but accessible essays show how, while never losing their foothold on the natural world – be it landscapes or the human form – works by the likes of Seurat and Signac also embody Symbolist concerns with spirituality, subjectivity and inner life.’—Juanita Coulson, The Lady.

“All in all, this is a superb and much-needed assessment.  Profusely and well illustrated.”—CHOICE
