It would be nice if the "concept" section explained the concept in more detail. Currently, it is all about who called whom "decadent", with only (half of) the first sentence actually explaining what the concept was all about. LachlanA (talk) 07:29, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
My thought is that there is a major need for editing here. In looking at the list of artists supposedly associated with the Decadent Movement, I noticed several questionable entries. Edvard Munch, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon (a Symbolist, IIRC), and Anton Chekhov (???) among them.
I'm not the person to do these particular edits, but I'm sure that someone with more knowledge of late 19th c. European painting (especially French painting) and Russian literature should be able to set things straight.

I'm doing a seminar on Decadence, and I've taken some key words from Decadent Style (John R. Reed), Baudelaire (Jean-Paul Sartre), The Decadent Poetry of the Eighteen-Nineties (John M. Munro) (not really in a particular order):
All this article says is that, yes, there was this art movement called The Decadent Movement and here are some of the artists associated with it. And that's about it.
What are some overarching themes in the Decadent Movement? What questions or issues did they struggle with? Were there any important exhibitions? Was this primarily a literary movement or one of fine art? Or music? Or film? Were there any geographical centers of activity? How did they distinguish themselves from the Romantic Movement?
So much more needs to be said here. Any art history majors with some time on their hands? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:36, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
