Gustave Moreau; Between Epic and Dream

by Genevieve Lacambre

A splendid and revealing celebration of the timeless art of one of the most influential painters of the nineteenth century, Gustave Moreau, whose unconventional and highly personal style explores the most elusive domains of exoticism and mysticism. Ranging from mythology to sheer fantasy, Moreau's themes have a profound otherworldly beauty and symbolism which inspires and uplifts. This volume, published to coincide with the exhibition marking the centenary of the painter's death, gathers more than 200 of his most characteristic and genial works, captioned and thoroughly documented. 308 pages. 9.75 x 12.5 inches.

First edition. Splendidly illustrated in black & white and color with the artist's works, captioned. Abundantly documented.

Published by: The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, 1996.
