Summary
LOOKING AT PICTURES--a selection of Robert Walser's writings on art and artists--is a Christine Burgin/New Directions co-publication, and includes 45 full-color illustrations. 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. His essays consider Van Gogh, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Cranach, Watteau, Fragonard, Brueghel and his own brother Karl and also discuss general topics such as the character of the artist and of the dilettante as well as the differences between painters and poets --
