Mystical Symbolism: The Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris, 1892–1897


This is the first museum exhibition to examine the art of the Salons de la Rose+Croix. In 1892, Joséphin Péladan (1859–1918), an eccentric critic, author, and self-proclaimed high priest of Rosicru-cianism, founded the annual Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris to showcase mystical Symbolist art. Mysterious, visionary, and mythical themes prevailed in the works at his salons, with images of femmes fragiles and fatales, androgynous creatures, chimeras, and incubi. International in scope, the salons fea-tured artists from Belgium, Finland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, among other countries. Emile-Antoine Bourdelle, Jean Delville, Charles Filiger, Fernand Khnopff, Gaetano Previati, Georges Rouault, Alexandre Séon, Ville Vallgren, and Félix Vallotton were among those who participated, and composers such as Erik Satie were also involved. The exhibition will be organized around common themes in the works, including the role of Orpheus, the adulation of the Italian Primitives, and the cult of personality—groupings that, in turn, will underscore the diverse and sometimes opposing concepts that informed Symbolism in the 1890s. Curated by Vivien Greene, Senior Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art, with the assistance of Ylinka Barotto, Curatorial Assistant, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, Mystical Symbolism will portray a transnational cross section of artists, some better known than others, and allow for a fresh look at late 19th-century Symbolist art.
