Art and visual perception : a psychology of the creative eye by Rudolf Arnheim( Book )
256 editions published between 1941 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 4,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its first publication in 1954, this work has established itself as a unique classic. It applies the approaches and findings of modern psychology to the study of art: it describes the visual process that takes place when people create- or look at- works in the various arts, and explains how the eye organizes visual material according to definite psychological laws. Fresh in thought, clean in style, this book is a highly readable contribution to the study of aesthetics. It could be recommended as an excellent introduction to the psychology of perception, however, it is the art lover, whether psychologist or not, who will find this book the most rewarding. -- from Book Jacket

Film as art by Rudolf Arnheim( Book )
83 editions published between 1947 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the fall of 1957 the University of California Press expanded Arnheim's 1933 book Film by four essays and brought that landmark work back into print as Film as Art. Now nearly fifty years after that re-edition, the book continues to occupy an important place in the literature of film. Arnheim's method, provocative in this age of technological wizardry, was to focus on the way art in film was derived from that medium's early limitations: no sound, no color, no three-dimensional depth." -- Publisher's description

To the rescue of art twenty-six essays by Rudolf Arnheim( )
16 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and Italian and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Never before published essays by the widely admired psychologist of art. Arnheim spiritedly asserts art's fundamental achievements. Rudolf Arnheim has spent a lifetime analyzing the basic psychological principles that make works of visual art meaningful, stirring, indispensable, and lasting. But recent fashionable attitudes and theories about art, he argues, are undermining the foundation of artistic achievement itself. The essays collected in this volume are written in his familiar, careful, and solidly supported manner, but under present circumstances they amount to a call to arms. Included is

Parables of sun light observations on psychology, the arts, and the rest by Rudolf Arnheim( )
7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For many years Rudolf Arnheim, known as the leading psychologist of art, has been keeping notebooks in which to jot down observations, ideas, questions, and even (after a stay in Japan for a year) poems in the haiku pattern. Some of these notes found their way into his books--known and prized the world over--such as Art and Visual Perception, Visual Thinking, and The Power of the Center (see list below). Now he has selected, from the remaining riches of his notebooks, the items in this volume. The book will be a joy to ramble through for all lovers of Arnheim's work, and indeed for anyone who sh
Thoughts on art education by Rudolf Arnheim( Book )
27 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Encargado por el Getty Center for Education in the Arts, el presente trabajo recoge, en esencia, un destilado de algunas de las principales ideas que han aparecido en la obra de Arnheim a lo largo de los cuarenta últimos años: una visión sofisticada de la capacidad humana, una visión que nos ayuda a comprender que la percepción y la creación del arte visual son los agentes primarios en el desarrollo de la mente. Con un estilo elegante e incisivo, Arnheim autor también de El pensamiento visual y El cine como arte, ambos igualmente publicados por Paidós propone planteamientos profundos e importantes que deberían aplicarse en las escuelas para que los niños aprendieran a experimentar las características única del mundo en que habitan. Así, la esencia del mensaje de Arnheim autor también de El cine como arte y El pensamiento visual, ambos publicados igualmente por Paidós en esta misma colección es que la visión misma es una función de la inteligencia, que la percepción es un suceso cognitivo, que interpretación y significado son un aspecto indivisible de la visión, y que el proceso educativo puede frustrar o potenciar estas habilidades humanas
