Overview

The French artist Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) was among the painters who paved the way for modern art. The teacher of Matisse and Rouault, Moreau created in his work a world of glittering illusion and mystery. His complex, decorative style united a passion for mythology and mysticism with exquisite craftsmanship, and inspired a generation of Symbolist painters and writers, among them Proust, Mallarme, and the English Pre-Raphaelites. Genevieve Lacambre, curator of the Gustave Moreau Museum, Paris, explores Moreau's life and leads a tour of the museum that, created by the artist himself, holds all his secrets.
