Course description: The Belle Époque, the late 19th century was a period of great development in Europe. Inventions, discoveries and innovations turned the art world as well. In contrast with Realism and Impressionism, parallel styles and artistic movements developed. Such is the case of Symbolism. The message is going to be more important than technique and artists are going to develop their own style.
