Origins and History

Contemporary Symbolism Drawings emerged in the late 19th century as a reaction to the academic art of the time. Symbolists sought to express spiritual and emotional truths through their work, often employing dream-like imagery and rich symbolism. Artists such as Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon were pioneers of this movement, which continued to gain popularity well into the 20th century.
