Vie des formes by Henri Focillon ( Book )
119 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"L'oeuvre d'art est une tentative vers l'unique, elle s'affirme comme un tout, 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 du monde et installe dans l'histoire un ordre qui ne se réduit à rien d'autre." Cet ouvrage est devenu un classique que tout étudiant en histoire de l'art se doit d'avoir lu. Il témoigne non seulement de la grande érudition de son auteur mais aussi de la perception et de la compréhension des oeuvres d'art, formes construisant l'espace ; la matière et l'esprit d'un univers imaginaire dont les artistes sont les géomètres
