2 Kandinsky in Munich: The Formative Jugendstil Years Weiss, Peg
Ewing, New Jersey, U.S.A. Princeton Univ Pr 1979 0691039348 / 9780691039343 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Quatro 
This volume has a good many illustrations, but it is primarily biographical, covering those years when Kandinsky planted himself in Bavaria shortly after the turn of the century. Munich at that time was the center of the Jugendstil, or Art Nouveau movement. From his arrival in 1896, Kandinsky was enveloped by that atmosphere, and this book addresses itself as to how much this influenced his painting. It is essential for those lovers of Kandinsky, and is highly recommended.

7 The Illustrated Library of Art Piper, David
Westminster, Maryland, U.S.A. Random House Value Pub 1986 0517623366 / 9780517623367 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Quatro 
This big fat volume is subtitled "History, Appreciation and Tradition," and it consists of three big parts: Part 1 is entitled 'Understanding Art.' (25l pages), Part 2 is entitled 'Great Traditions' and is 215 pages, while Part 3 is headed 'New Traditions,' and consists of 492 pages -- making this beast 958 pages total. And in the opinion of this reviewer, whose shop has about 35,000 books on Art, this is one remarkable book: loaded with beautiful illustrations, and a very insightful text. Look in particular at the Exekias of Aias and Achilles play draughts on page 242, or at the sensual and suggerstive 'Venus and Anchises' on page 395. Continue on and on and check out the Dictionary beginning on pagre 727. It is a remarkable achievement, a great book, a wonderful gift. And if you have read all the foregoing, you might gather that we think this is a magnificent book. And you would be right. DJ protected by a Mylar covering.
