Vie des formes by Henri Focillon( Book )

127 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'oeuvre d'art est une tentative vers l'unique, elle s'affirme comme un tout, comme un absolu et, en même temps, elle appartient à un système de relations complexes ... . Elle est matière et elle est esprit, elle est forme et elle est contenu ... . Elle est créatrice de l'homme, créatrice du monde et elle installe dans l'histoire un ordre qui ne se réduit à rien d'autre." Un Eloge de la main complète ce texte. "La main arrache le toucher à sa passivité réceptive, elle l'organise pour l'expérience et pour l'action ... . Elle se mesure avec la matière qu'elle métamorphose, avec la forme qu'elle transfigure. Educatrice de l'homme, elle le multiplie dans l'espace et dans le temps." [Source : 4e de couv.]
