Arnold Schoenberg and Wassily Kandinsky - Letters, Pictures and Documents

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Book shows slight signs of wear, with front and back covers dotted with marks and creases. There is also some discolouration around the edges and on the spine. Inside, pages are clean and images are bright and clear.

The book is illustrated with colour and black-and-white reproductions of paintings and set designs by both artists, and with previously unpublished photographs.

The creative innovations of Arnold Schoenberg and Wassily Kandinsky changed the course of 20th-century music and painting, and this collection of letters, pictures and documents is of the first importance for understanding their work, their influence on one another, and their far-reaching effect on contemporary art.

Most of the Schoenberg - Kandinsky correspondence appears here for the first time in English. Essays by editor Jelena Hahl-Koch and translator John C. Crawford give valuable background information and put the rise of atonal music and abstract painting into historical context.
