Symbolism vs. Post-Impressionism vs. Art Nouveau Symbolism : a late 19th-century movement in art and literature that presented alternatives to the realistic impulses of Realism and Impressionism. • Symbolism vs. Post-Impressionism : Post-Impressionism can be considered an outgrowth of or a reaction against Impressionism; Symbolism is more of an alternative to Impressionism, with little or no relation to it at all. • Symbolist / Post-Impressionist “crossovers” : Some artists that we think of primarily as Post-Impressionists can also be considered Symbolists (e.g., Gauguin). Conversely, some artists that we think of primarily as Symbolists can also be considered Post-Impressionists (e.g., Munch). Art Nouveau (French for “New Art”): a style or movement that took its name from the gallery L’Art Nouveau in Paris, which promoted it. • Art Nouveau vs. Symbolism : By contrast with Symbolism, Art Nouveau is a specific style —the way something looks —irrespective of subject matter or content. Some Symbolists use an Art Nouveau style (e.g., Beardsley); some do not (e.g., Redon).
