Symbolist artists’ employment of ambiguity in choices of subject matter extended to formal strategies that obscure form as well as content. Focusing on the ways artists experimented with print media and explored technical means of suggesting formal ambiguity(i.e. flattening, abstracting, obscuring) both to better match form and content and to push the boundaries of figurative art, this exhibition places Symbolist art in the context of Modernism. Included are prints by artists Odilon Redon, Jan Toorop, Paul Gauguin, Maurice Denis, Édouard Vuillard, Félix Vallotton, Henri Ibels, Pierre Bonnard, Félix Buhot, Pierre Roche, Henri Martin, Armand Point, Maurice Dumont, Jeanne Jacquemin, Georges de Feure, François-Marius Valère Bernard, Carlos Schwabe and others.
