The art of Gustave Moreau stands apart from that of his Realist and Impressionist contemporaries in 19th-century France, because of the mystical and enigmatic quality of his paintings of biblical and mythological subjects.

He is considered an important precursor to the Symbolist and Surrealist movements, and his students included Henri Matisse and Georges Rouault. Salome Dancing before Herod created a sensation when it was exhibited for the first time in Paris at the Salon of 1876 and is arguably Moreaus most important work. In its appreciation of Salome, this beautiful volume features dozens of Moreaus related paintings, drawings, and preparatory studies. Also included are essays exploring the development and creation of the painting, the interiors of Moreaus house and studio, and a reflection by artist Richard Hawkins on his fascination with both Moreau and Salome.
