“I believe neither in what I touch nor what I see . I only believe in what i do not see , and solely in what I feel”
Gustave Moreau was a major figure in French Symbolist painting whose main emphasis was the illustration of biblical and mythological figures. During his lifetime, Moreau produced more than 8,000 paintings, watercolors and drawings. André Breton famously used to “haunt” the museum and regarded Moreau as a precursor of Surrealism. His work influenced the next generation of Symbolists, particularly Odilon Redon and Jean Delville.
