Paul Klee--Painting Music

£19.99

Product description

Klee, a member of the highly regarded Bern Orchestra, was for a long time unsure whether to make his career in art or music. Duchting describes how, from his earliest work, Klee focused his efforts on combining these two art forms. Paul Klee: Painting Music describes and illustrates how, from his earliest work as both painter and musician, Klee focused his efforts on combining these two related art forms. He attempted to translate the fundamental structures and rhythms of musical composition into painting. He developed and harmonized pictorial themes as a composer would write music, weaving a complex series of signs and symbols into his painting. It is no surprise that he constantly sought inspiration in music, the most abstract of all art forms. This book represents the first major attempt to focus on the fascinating bond between music and painting in Klee's work, particularly at the Bauhaus, where his theories and practice first merged, and where he was to develop his Colour Spectrum, Square, and Polyphone painting series.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
