Art of Hugo Simberg

The French Symbolists, as defined by the Symbolist Manifesto (1886) were poets, writers, and artists who believed in the elusive nature of Idea. They draped it, like ghosts with sheets, so that it might be seen obliquely. They presented phenomena in a way that pointed toward Primordial, Esoteric Truths. Hugo Simberg was a Finnish artist of the late 19th and early 20th century. He was directly associated with the symbolist movement.
