In his art, composer Arnold Schonberg was always eager to embrace the new and the unfamiliar. A characteristic feature of his music around 1910 was a quest for analogous forms in other media, a search which led him to shift from music to painting. The expressionist paintings he produced during this period garnered glowing praise from Kandinsky--and have lost none of their extraordinary power today, though they are rarely exhibited. Focusing on his self portraits and abstract works, this publication provides a welcome, analytic, and extensive view of Schonberg's highly influential and visionary oeuvre.
