Van Gogh to Kandinsky : Symbolist Landscape in Europe 1880-1910 Hardback
Edited by Frances Fowle
A groundbreaking collaboration between the National Galleries of Scotland, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Finnish National Gallery, this catalogue accompanies the first exhibition dedicated to landscapes by the Symbolists, the innovative movement whose artists took a more imaginative and emotional approach to painting and embraced themes such as music, nationalism, science and modernity. It covers a wide range of artists, from forerunners of symbolism, like Boecklin and Whistler, to Mondrian and Kandinsky, who provided the impulse for major 20th-century movements, such as surrealism and abstraction.
Works by renowned painters, like Monet, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Munch, are presented alongside lesser known, but equally fascinating artists from the Nordic countries and Eastern Europe.
