During the last two decades of the 19th century, Symbolism in both art and literature flourished. This European cultural movement valued intuition, fantasy, and imagination over empirical science, so Symbolist landscapes described not actual nature but, instead, landscapes of dreams and visions. Stuck’s Trout Pond seems to resonate with mystery and import.
