Babel: Hermetic languages, universal languages, and anti-languages in fin de siecle Parisian culture [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
In fin-de-siecle Paris, language was the arena for battles over trade and national security, over epistemology and the future of art. Georges Seurat and other artists engaged linguistic themes that were being debated in apparently unrelated domains of official culture. However, symbolist artists turned those linguistic themes inside out.
