The Nabis, a group of radical young painters who formed an artistic brotherhood in Paris in 1889, established what was probably the most important artistic movement in fin-de-siecle France, yet until now their work has not been the subject of a major study. The group took its name from the Hebrew word meaning "prophets", and was composed of artists of various national, political and religious backgrounds: among the members were Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Paul Serusier, Maurice Denis, Henri-Gabriel Ible, Ker-Xavier Roussel, Felix Vallotton, and Jozsef Rippl-Ronai. Inspired by contemporary Symbolist theory and the art of Paul Gauguin, the Nabis set out to revolutionize traditional aesthetics.
