"In the misty domain of Symbolism, Dorra's anthology of source material offers the student the most lucid of guidebooks. Spanning more than half a century, from 1850 to 1918, its broad vista puts into fresh perspective the ambitions of the most diverse artists, architects, poets, and theorists, from Rossetti to Fry, Verlaine to Munch, Eiffel to Apollinaire."--Robert Rosenblum, New York University "This long-awaited anthology expands the parameters of Symbolist discourse. The carefully selected and annotated texts provide clear insight into a Symbolist vocabulary that had considerable impact on future generations.Symbolist Art Theorieshas deep resonance for an age transfixed by textual interpretation."--Gabriel P. Weisberg, author ofBeyond Impressionism "Dorra's impeccable scholarship is matched by the insight that relates the fragments. The book is of great value not only for students of symbolism, but for all those interested in the early history of modern art and art theory."--George Mauner, Pennsylvania State UniversityDorra, Henri is the author of 'Symbolist Art Theories A Critical Anthology', published 1995 under ISBN 9780520077683 and ISBN 0520077687.
