How can Symbolism apply to abstract art limited edition prints?

Symbolism started in the late 19th century to advocate ideas in contrast to realistic natural depictions. Today artists who paint taking aspects of this movement into their painting style can create abstract art limited edition prints in order to increase their revenue and expand the exposure of their artwork.

Although the movement originated in poetry, the idea found its expression in the visual arts. The realistic and lifelike portrayal of the natural world as emphasized by naturalism, realism, and impressionism was overlooked in favour of dreamlike imaginary worlds where mysterious figures were inspired by Greek antiquity, the Bible, and literature.

Symbolism conveys the meaning behind colours, shapes, forms, and lines drawn on the canvas.
