I became aware of Robert Walser through his novels (The Tannersand The Assistant). It was Walser's characters who grabbed me, but his flowing prose that kept me. This gorgeously crafted book, with tipped-in plates of the paintings, collects Walser's musings on the arts and the artists. Looking At Pictures is a lovely book wherein art is explored with whimsy and awareness.
