Looking at Pictures
Sorry, currently out of stock
A beautiful and elegant collection with gorgeous full-color art reproductions, Looking at Pictures presents a little-known side of the eccentric Swiss genius: his great writings on art. Walser’s essays consider Van Gogh, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Cranach, Watteau, Fragonard, Brueghel, and his own brother Karl, and also discuss general topics such as the characters of the artist and the dilettante, as well as the differences between painters and poets. Every piece is marked by the artist’s unique eye, his delicate sensitivity, and his very particular sensibilities and all are touched by his magic screwball wit.
