‘Les Fleurs du Mal’ at Nahmad Contemporary


‘Les Fleurs du Mal’ at Nahmad Contemporary, New York, reveals the common threads between the 19th Century Symbolist Gustave Moreau and art today. Evinced by modern masters, the show goes through the evolution of Modernism and contextualizes the present with works by contemporary artists who inspire and expand its path today.

An avid writer, Moreau often wrote rapturously on the process of painting: “The artist becomes sublime: he forgets nature in its physical and vulgar manifestations and gives himself up to the manifestation of dream and the immaterial.”
