Solomon R Guggenheim  Mystical Symbolism

The Salon de la Rose+Croix exhibited in Paris and showcased mystical symbolist art during the 1890s, a time when religious and occult practices often intertwined. Mysterious, visionary, and mythical subjects, often drawn from literary sources, prevailed in the art at the salons. Images of femmes fragiles and fatales, androgynous creatures, chimeras, and incubi were the norm.
