203 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #2180
The epoch of symbolism in art is the period between 1880 and 1910. It is a significant flow of sculpture and painting that deals with access to unconscious processes. This was up to date even before Freud's time. The "symbolic manifesto" summarized the movement as follows: "The essential characteristic of symbolist art is never to fixate an idea conceptually or to pronounce it directly." The painter, engraver, draftsman and sculptor of this epoch, Gustave Moreau (* 1826 in Paris - † 1898 in Paris), which has decisively shaped the symbolism, focused in his works on mystical representations and dream scenes. Gustave Moreau, who had studied at the "École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts", made numerous trips to Italy to meet artists and to see original works. Friends close to him were the painter Théodore Chassériau and the sculptor and painter Edgar Degas .
Its artistic significance is expressed today in a museum in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, the "Musée national Gustave Moreau", in which his life's work is documented and his works are made accessible to the public.

Gustave Moreau was of fragile health and did not immediately win prizes for his works. Nevertheless, his theme and style prevailed. He made a name for himself above all in painting. In paintings such as "Oedipus and the Sphinx" the figures and their surroundings are clearly recognizable, but elements are shown that are unreal. He does the unreal, as if it were real. Thus, it highlights other levels of consciousness as part of our reality (s). The existence of the psyche, the meaning of the dream and the transcendental find expression in his work. The paintings "Salomé", "Europa and the Bull" or "Hesiod and the Muse" show female and male figures who have wings or are in an unreal environment. Gustave Moreau may not have known it during his lifetime, but engaging with other levels of consciousness was the impetus for later developing psychoanalysis. Once again, art was one of the pioneers of significant developments. It makes you think and paves ways to go. © Meisterdrucke
