dc.description.abstract This study indicates that it is possible to identify clear points of convergence between the genre of poetry and the art of painting within a particular mode. The exploitation and development of images produced within the mode of symbolism are found in the different genres of the three artists. The order of presentation of the material also provides points of similarity. All three artists use repetitions to intensify and drive home their point, and to facilitate the transition from concrete to abstract. Typical themes within the symbolist movement appear frequently in the work of all three artists. The aesthetic nature of their work results from a careful ordering of all the structural elements at their disposal. The quest towards beauty - which the symbolists saw as the ultimate aim of all art - manifests itself clearly in the work of Louw, Nijhoff and Gauguin. The poetry of Louw and Nijhoff and the painting of Gauguin all share characteristics of the broader symbolist movement. The clearest relations can be found in the quest for isolation and detachment and the creation of a transcendental reality far removed from a worldly existence. Louw, Nijhoff and Gauguin all embody within their work the idea of the artist as the chosen one can give realization to beauty and the ''other world.'' this study has, only focused on poetry and painting within the context of symbolism. It would also be possible to extend its parameters to include the disciplines of sculpture, dance, music and architecture. This study of the various similarities between the artistic disciplined has attempted to indicate that the practice of ''comparative aesthetics'', as defined by Etienne Sourain is both viable and practicable. en
