A visual survey of the works of Gustave Moreau, published to coincide with the exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, December 2010 through to April 2011. This spectacular publication offers a survey of the many aesthetic faces of Gustave Moreau, from highly finished Salon oil paintings, meticulous presentation drawings and vivid pen and ink sketches, to the stunning opulence of his glowing watercolours and painterly oil studies. It also considers the full range of Moreau's obsessions with exotic subject matter, from classical antiquity and the ancient Far East, to some of Christianity's more lurid escapades and the poetic narratives of the Middle Ages.

Artist: Gustave Moreau
