Fin de siecle / turn of the century, the point where Victoriana reached its apogee of intricacy and retrospection, but modernism startled the world
with its realism, space and linear work influenced by Japonisme- in part due to a Victorian obsession with all styles, historical and abroad even if it
ultimately countered it's own fundamentals. It was the period when the avant garde was in the air, globally, echoing with social justice, freedom and
a brief period of sexual liberation.

Folklore meets realism = the romance of the age.
