Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
This is the first social history of the Symbolist movement, providing new definitions and theories for Symbolism and Decadence. Sharon Hirsh addresses issues such as spatial/street confrontations with the crowd, the diseased city, and the New Woman. Focusing on works by well known artists such as Van Gogh, Munch and Ensor, Hirsh also considers the works of artists who contributed in important ways to the Symbolist movement and the cities in which they worked.
