Symbolism and Art
The artists, in order, are:
Tivadar Kosztka Czontváry
Symbolism is described by Symbolists as art which is geared towards absolute truths but in the metaphorical ideal.
My questions for you are which of these artists best exemplifies that definition? Also, who living today, in your opinion, best exemplifies this definition (the individual does not need to be an artist)? How much Symbolism is used in art and literature today--is it too much, or too little?
