Format: Hardcover
I was happy to learn that these two volumes are in a book of the 100 top books of the 20th century. The only art book listed.I bought my two volumes after selling one of my own paintings. The price of the set you will find varies in price according to publication date.Initially this is the record of Klee's outline and notes on his classes on design.A good library of a professional artist shouldn't be without this set. Another series is the Documents of Modern Art edited by Robert Motherwell. I would approach the Thinking Eye by giving one of the sections as an assignment.By doing some practical work along side reading the texts you will understand what Klee is getting at.Many of Klee's exercises are from his fabric design classes at the Bauhaus.In studying Klee's work alongside his class outline you will see that they aren't just design but possess a painterliness of their own.Klee's ambition was to establish a new standard of teaching art. Such as the musicians of Mozart era. Winston Hough

These notebooks are the work of a thoughtful and perceptive artist. They give insight into his own creative process. The sense I have is that they will be especially useful for artists as they touch often upon technical matters the common reader like myself does not always readily understand.
