The aesthetes, decadents and symbolist painters represent an elitist,
marginal art movement, overshadowed by the more progressive
artists, such as Seurat and Van Gogh, who led the way to modernism.
Symbolism is a highly literary phenomenon, with links to poets such
as Baudelaire, Poe and Mallarmé. Formally, artists reverted to past
styles, as far back as the Middle Ages, and believed that inner reality--
dreams and the imagination--was the only thing worth representing.
Symbolism is important as a link between Romanticism and
Surrealism.
