Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian pioneer of abstract painting whose work has influenced generations of artists. His "Sounds" ("Klنnge") of 1912 is one of the earliest, most beautiful examples of a 20th-century artist's book. Its "sound poems" are alternately narrative and expressive, witty and simple in form. They treat questions of space, color, physical design, and the act of seeing in a world that offers multiple and often contradictory possibilities. The woodcut illustrations that accompany the poems range from representational designs to abstract vignettes. In its fusion of image and word, "Sounds" epitomizes the artist's move toward abstraction and his aspiration to a synthesis of the arts. This updated edition of "Sounds" includes all of the book's poems in English and German and its woodcuts, twelve of which appear in color for greater fidelity to the original. The translator's introduction offers close formal examination of the poems and situates Sounds in the context of Kandinsky's oeuvre. Although it was prized by prominent 20th-century artists, "Sounds" is one of the least known of Kandinsky's major writings, and this remains the most authoritative English version.
