Spanning from Naturalism to Symbolism, this extensive catalogue offers glimpses into various artists' lives in Germany and Great Britain as well as in Italy, where many of them were based.
With more than 200 illustrations and 100 artworks, the publication gives a rounded picture of the period 1850-1920, covering most of the important major artistic movements of the time, and often highlighting how literature and visual arts mutually influenced each other in such environments.
Numerous connections identified in this catalogue were not previously recognised and only came to light through research and compilation. It wasn’t a coincidence, but rather an intuitive combination of works that gradually formed a network. The catalogue contains a variety of discoveries which added to some of the artists' biographies, and some important letters have been published here for the first time.
