artisandoflove asked: Love this blog, perfect. I post Decadent and Symbolist art from the fin-de-siècle on my art thesis blog, fetishofsilence - please keep blogging these wonderful misunderstood masterpieces.
For me, the only pleasure greater than coming across these artworks that stir the mind & ignite the soul, is being able to pass along those sentiments by simply sharing said images & the stories behind them.
I had the privilege of first studying Symbolism & Decadence, in a superb seminar on everything Belle Epoque France, &, to have gotten to write about Belgian Symbolism. It’s always a welcome surprise to meet others who are familiar with what it’s all about! Thanks for your wonderful feedback. I will definitely take a look at your blog.
To be honest, I was rather stunned that there was no tumblr dedicated exclusively to the subject so, I went ahead and made this one. After all, I agree with you that the bizarrely beautiful work of these transcendental artists should be kept alive.
If there are glaring omissions, or, if you find any pieces that you think should be added to the collection, please do not hesitate to submit them for posting.
