Abstract:

"The literary works of August Strindberg are admired throughout the world, but few people outside his native Scandinavia are aware of his accomplishments as a painter and photographer. This book brings Strindberg's dramatic and highly original artistic works to an English-speaking audience." "The book begins by examining Strindberg's paintings, photographs, drawings, and decorated manuscripts and by discussing the importance of pictorial arts to other areas of Strindberg's work. It then focuses on his photography, relates the experimental photographs he took during the 1890s to the natural philosophy he developed during the same period, describes his relations to artistic circles in Paris, and examines his influence on the Swedish painter Carl Larsson. Illustrated in full color, the book sheds new light on the achievements of this innovative and deeply troubled genius."--Jacket.
