Illuminating the artistic and cultural objectives of the avant-garde Belgian artists who formed Les Vingt, a progressive exhibition society active in Brussels from 1883 to the early 1890s, this scholarly catalogue presents reproductions and individual analyses of more than 150 prints, drawings, posters, book illustrations and other works by some 25 artists, among them Ensor, Khnopff, Van Rysselberghe, Rops and Van de Velde. Six substantial essays include discussions of cultural and political currents in 19th-century Belgium, the organization and significance of the annual exhibitions mounted by Les Vingt, the extensive involvement of the Vingtistes in book design, and the group's relationship to socialist causes and to the Symbolist movement in literature.
