A new edition of Sixten Ringbom's classic study of esotericism's influence on abstract art

Wassily Kandinsky’s With Swan (Mit schwan) (c. 1912) is reproduced from The Sounding Cosmos: A Study in the Spiritualism of Kandinsky and the Genesis of Abstract Painting, Finnish art historian Sixten Ringbom’s classic and highly-sought-after 1970 volume on esotericism and art, reissued for the first time in this elegant, 350-page volume from Bokförlaget Stolpe—enhanced in this edition by a supplemental text by Daniel Birnbaum and Julia Voss. Topics include the dissolution of matter and the collapse of science; the disintegration of the atom; thought transference and thought images; the paths of inner knowledge—and more. For anyone interested in Theosophy, spiritualism, occultism or esotericism in Modern art, this is a book for life.
