Visible Deeds of Music: Art and Music from Wagner to Cage

Front Cover
Yale University Press, Jan 1, 2002 - Music - 290 pages
This provocative book explores the cross-fertilization between music and the visual arts in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Reassessing the work of a wide range of composers and artists including Richard Wagner, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, and John Cage, Simon Shaw-Miller demonstrates how the boundaries between art and music were permeable at this time, enabling each to enrich the other.
