Art. Music. Cultural Writing. JOHN CAGE VISUAL ART is an exquisite book which includes 116 color images. It is presented in three parts. The first is a text wrtten from Kathan Brown's own experience. In it, she often uses Cage's words to describe particular works, and she reflects upon how the art can be used in the world. The second part is a detailed section that illustrates scores that Cage created for his printers, and explains his use of what he called chance operations in making his work. The third section is pictorial, including reproductions of Cage's prints, watercolors and drawings. John Cage told Brown that the purpose of art is to sober and quiet the mind, so that it is in accord with what happens.
