Mystical Symbolism: The Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris, 1892–1897 October 28, 2017–January 7, 2018
This is the first museum exhibition on this revelatory and significant yet frequently overlooked series of Salons which were held annually in Paris from 1892 to 1897. Images of femmes fragiles and fatales, androgynous creatures, chimeras, and nightmares were the norm, as were sinuous lines, attenuated figures, and anti-naturalistic forms. Featuring highlights from the Salons, this exhibition will include approximately forty works by a cross section of artists and invite a fresh look at and new scholarship on the legacies of late nineteenth-century Symbolist art.
