OP IMPRESSIONISM TO SYMBOLISM: THE BELGIAN AVANT-GARDE, 1880-1900. Ed. by MaryAnne Stevens and Robert Hoozee. Royal Academy of Arts, London, 1994. Published in association with Ludion, Ghent. 296 pp. with 181 ills. (81 col.). 29 x 25 cm. ISBN 0900946466 In English.
An in-depth exploration of progressive trends in fin-de-siecle Belgian art, this catalogue provides fine reproductions and detailed analyses of 52 paintings, 19 drawings and nine sculptures by James Ensor, Theo van Rysselberghe, George Minne, A.W. Finch, Fernand Khnopff, Felicien Rops, Henry van de Velde and 25 other artists, including landscapes, portraits, interiors, still lifes and allegorical compositions variously reflecting the influence of Impressionism, Pointillism and Symbolism. Critical profiles of the featured artists and an extensive chronology of events involving members of the Belgian avant garde over the period supplement four essays that discuss the adaptations of international styles by Belgian artists, the activities of the Brussels-based exhibition societies Les Vingt and La Libre Esthetique, and the opposition of the Antwerp art establishment to the new movements of the time.
