Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities: Painting, Poetry, Music
2014·New Haven and London
by Homburg, Cornelia et al.
New Haven and London: Yale University Press / The Phillips Collection, 2014. Hardcover. VG. Blue cloth, blue & color illus. dust jacket, 191 pp., 130 color illus. Issued in conjunction with a 2014-2015 exhibition that "explores the creative exchange between Neo-Impressionist painters and Symbolist writers and composers in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Symbolism, with its emphasis on subjectivity, dream worlds, and spirituality, has often been considered at odds with Neo-Impressionism's approach to portraying color and light. This book repositions the relationship between these movements and looks at how Neo-Impressionist artists such as Maximilien Luce, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Henry van de Velde created evocative landscape and figural scenes by depicting emptiness, contemplative moods, Arcadia, and other themes. ... This book reveals the vibrancy and depth of the Neo-Impressionist movement in Paris and Brussels in the late nineteenth century." (dj) With eight thematic and illustrated essays and a selected bibliography. The exhibition checklist cites works by 14 artists, and most if not all are pictured within the narrative. Nice!
