The Art of the Symbolist Book

Morgan Library and Museum, New York



The Symbolist movement of the nineteenth century grew out of Charles Baudelaire’s visionary poetry, which explored correspondences between the sensory and the spiritual. This exhibition, drawing entirely on the Morgan’s collection, explores some of the encounters between Symbolist authors and artists and the creative approaches they took to illustrate the invisible. Works by Stephane Mallarmé, Odilon Redon, Paul Verlaine, Fantin-Latour, and Arthur Rimbaud will be featured. Find out more about the ‘Delirium’ exhibition from the Morgan Library’s website.
