Graceful and beautiful monochrome images from the early Twentieth century, these are classics from the history of photography as well as detailed, enlarged images of natural forms. From the original work Urformen der Kunst (Archetypes of Art) from 1928, these photographs focus on leaves, buds, stems, symmetry, curvature and texture of plants and flowers.
Justifiably famous images, they point to the theme that "Art mirrors Nature" and that the styles and techniques of composition are underpinned by the elegant structures of the natural world - which are themselves governed by rules of pattern and composition. 
This Dover edition reproduces the original 120 full page photographs to high quality. 

Illustrations: 120 black and white photographs. 
Size: 213 x 286 mm
