Van Gogh to Kandinsky
Symbolist Landscape in Europe 1880-1910
A Thames & Hudson book
A revelatory collection of
Symbolist landscapes by
Gauguin, van Gogh, Munch,
Strindberg, and more
This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition dedicated to landscapes by
the Symbolists, the innovative movement whose artists took imaginative and
emotional approaches to painting and embraced themes like music, nationalism,
science, and modernity.
The book focuses on major artists of the avant-garde such as Gauguin, van Gogh,
Munch, Mondrian, and Kandinsky, and also showcases other inventive artists from
throughout Europe such as Hammershoi, Hodler, Khnopff, and Gallen-Kallela, who
are set alongside the visionary British artistry of Crane, Leighton, Watts, and Millais.
The works illustrated here offer a range of poetic and suggestive interpretations of
nature from the period 1880–1910, with essays by acknowledged experts in the
field providing a new chapter in the history of landscape painting.
