Descrizione libro Laconti, Brussels, Belgium, 1972. Hardcover. Black cloth, black & illus. dust jacket, 282 pp., BW & color illus. Series: Belgium, Art of our Time. Translated from the French by Alistair Kennedy. "Depending on the way one looks at it, modern art possesses either a GOOD or an EVIL element, which might be termed the universal encyclopaedia of the visual and moral arts. This element, always latent, seems to have affected Europe in both the 16th and 19th centuries and it introduced what has been termed the Mannerist and Symbolist periods. In so far as Symbolism in Belgium is concerned -- for that is what this book is about -- I would situate the period between 1880 and 1914, not neglecting a strong undercurrent reaching back at least to the 16th century and probably even earlier -- to medieval thought and philosophy." (foreword). G (DJ has average edge wear and slight aging; top of book block has aged or soiled; glossy plate pages have tanned at top margin; text pages are crisp and clear.).
