May 09, Jamie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was pivotal in opening my mind to a multifaceted way of looking at visual organization, composition and development. It gave me a hunger to create that still fuels me today. Rudolf Arnheim is often overlooked as a pusher of modernist thinking and perhaps that he is maybe out of style or old school, this is SO untrue.
Yes, he is from the modernist era and references many artists from that era because of when this was written, but this book is a timeless way of looking at anything. He was an absolute genius and loved teaching, which is very evident in this book. He is in the direct lineage from the Bauhaus and studied with the most influential psychologists, architects and artists of the 20th century.
He wrote well into his 90s lived to be ! This type of book is probably not for the casual art enthusiast but for people looking to explore art on a deeper realm and gain an understanding of art, the artists mind, and how people perceive art and interpret art mentally regardless of if it contains a narrative or recognizable subject matter.
What once was just a bunch of meaningless sounds or words that stood alone become sentences. It is that prolific.
Although his writing style is academic, it is by no means boring and every chapter leads to the pursuit of more knowledge through chasing down books, authors, musicians and artists that he references. View 1 comment.
Apr 09, Lukasz rated it really liked it. Everyone who reads this book in its entirety is guaranteed to wind up appreciating and even 'understanding' abstract modernist art- I know I did. Contrary to what someone said here I would say this stuff does sink in- mainly because Arnheim managed to present his observations clearly, and illustrated them convincingly with visuals, in the form of reproductions or explanatory sketches by the author himself.
Arnheim's book will equip its readers with not just a vocabulary, but a whole grammar for Everyone who reads this book in its entirety is guaranteed to wind up appreciating and even 'understanding' abstract modernist art- I know I did. Arnheim's book will equip its readers with not just a vocabulary, but a whole grammar for talking and thinking about paintings from any chosen era- an invaluable skill for anyone who falls in love with a particular painting but doesn't know why or how to explain it to others.
Finally, 'Art and Visual Perception' is an essential read for those confused by post-modern art, willing to enjoy paintings firsthand, on a very basic and satisfying level, that is as resonant arrangements of lines, colours, planes.
You'll love Kandinsky after reading this one. Aug 01, Damien rated it it was amazing. Not quite as condensed, as Visual Thinking is essays, but a much deeper and more interesting book overall.

Jan 03, Maria rated it it was amazing. This book required the double effort from me, since English is not my native language, but it help me build all my creative thinking and visual creativity from scratch in order to be able to "save" it in mind.
At the end of the semester we took an exam on this book. Sep 26, Mochammad Yusni rated it really liked it. A nice book with interesting content.
A must read for anyone who teaches or pursues art and architecture. Mar 14, Stephen rated it it was amazing. This is a textbook slog.

But so worth it. As a non-artist trained in the sciences , this opened my eyes to the many things that are surely fundamental to practicing artists as regards composition.
And I see the value of formalism in art, particularly in its teaching as a craft. But as a lover of art, I also see the danger. I am wary of crushing the pure joy of discovery under a heavy pile of nuanced theory and rigid comparative analysis.
I know what I like, damn it , I am thankful for these many years of having it all just wash over me. And yet also thankful to now have a more studied basis to understand why it is that I may like or not like a certain work.
It seems to me that this book is essential to any aspiring artist. For the rest of us, this is a gift that opens the door to deeper understanding.
