In this lecture, ArtScapades looks at Symbolism, a late 19th-century art movement where artists were seeking to represent absolute truths symbolically through metaphorical images as a reaction against naturalism and realism. ArtScapades discusses the lives and works of Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, Gustav Klimt and Edvard Munch.
