But looking through "Drawings and Observations," it is hard to find any visual to indicate that the artist is an inspiring genius. In fact, the works range from juiceless mediocrity to cartoony. They're like the level that most artists would toss.
The only redeeming value I can see is psychological insight - just in case her truly fine work doesn't do the job for you.
The writing, on the other hand, has tremendous value on how this artist thinks as she creates.
All of her work seems to have depth of thought behind it. Art students would benefit from reading this book. And the sketches, even though they are of no significance aesthetically, are important as illustrations in tandem with the writing.
NOTE: It's heartening that, at this point, the price has come down so that it is now affordable for art schools and students.
