A Study of the Double Talent in Alfred Kubin and Fritz von Herzmanovsky-Orlando


Gabriele Van Zon

The relationship between art and literature is closest in the works of the double-talented artist. Relationships on the physical, formal and personal level involve the artist and his tools, aesthetic forms, communication, and private signs and symbols. In its methodology and theoretical positions, this volume should prove indispensable to students of interrelationships in the arts.
Contents: The artist/writer and his implements. Aesthetic form in written and graphic works. Communication in words and pictures and their role in personal myth. The double talent as mutual reinforcement.
