Summary
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 Bocklin and Whistler, to Mondrian and Kandinsky, who provided the impulse for major 20th-century movements, such as surrealism and abstraction. Exhibition: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (24.2.-17.6.2012); The National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh (14.7.-14.10.2012); Ateneum Art Museum, Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki, Finland (16.11.2012-17.2.2013)
