8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By S. G. Spence on March 5, 2003
Format: Paperback
The power of Hundertwasser's vision is there, in the illustrations in this book. Even in the difficult text there are glimpses of a coherent summation of what the man was about. But the clunky translation, really transliteration, which fails to use clear Anglo-saxon phrases instead of over-inflated terminology, makes the text at times impenetrable and pretentious. This is a pity, because I suspect the tone in the original language was clear and passionate.
On the whole, however, it was good enough as a first exposure to Hundertwasser, to make me want to explore this amazing and relevant man further.
