Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in France
Wild Souls: Symbolism in the Baltic States



Wild Souls: Symbolism in the Baltic States
FRANCE
PARIS  •  Musée d'Orsay  •  Until 15 July 2018
 
 

The independent states that make up the Baltic countries, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, were established just after the end of the First World War. To celebrate this centenary, this exhibition presents Baltic Symbolism from the 1890s to the end of the 1920s.

European Symbolism and the emancipation of consciousness that it disseminated are inseparable in the Baltic countries from their independence. This exhibition illustrates the interplay of influences and resistances through which artists forged a creative language appropriate to their intellectual world.
Taking elements from popular culture, folklore and local legends, as well as from their unique landscapes, they have created a genuinely original art form.
