Symbolism   •   Maurice Denis @ Wikipedia

"It should be kept in mind that a picture, before being a slaughter horse, a naked woman, or any anecdote, is essentially an ordinary surface, covered with a certain array of colors" at the end of the nineteenth century, that was an outrageous utterance young, only twenty years old painter and a rejection of the conventional painting of the art academies.

This young man, living in a suburb of Paris, was called Maurice Denis and was influenced by Gauguin and his students at an early age. Their hallmark was the use of pure, bright colors and a clear design language. Around 1888 he founded the group "Les Nabis" with like-minded, rebellious artists like Pierre Bonnard and Paul Sérusier. He was considered the theorist of the group and published several articles on his conception of art in important contemporary publications. For non-European influences the Nabis in particular the Japanese woodcut was important.

A typical image of him is the painting "sunspots on the terrace", which shows a female figure on a tree-lined area. With its strongly reduced forms, the figure can hardly be recognized as a woman, and held almost exclusively in complementary colors, this image in its radical reduction already points to the coming avant-garde of the 20th century. © Meisterdrucke
