Gray & color illus. boards, matching dust jacket, 192 pp., color & BW illus. Issued in conjunction with a series of 2001-2002 exhibitions of artwork by Swedish artist-writer August Strindberg (1849-1912). This book "is the first to bring Strindberg's dramatic and highly original artistic works to an English-speaking audience. The book begins by examining Strindberg's paintings, photographs, drawings and decorated manuscripts and discussing the importance of pictorial arts to other areas of Strindberg's oeuvre. It then focuses on Strindberg's photography, relates the experimental photographs he took during the 1890s to the natural philosophy he developed during the same period, describes his relations to artistic circles in Paris and examines his influence on the Swedish painter Carl Larsson. Richly illustrated in full color, the book sheds new light on the achievements of this innovative and deeply troubled genius." (dj).
