May 31, 2015, marks the centenary of the birth of Bernard Schultze. A pioneer of the movement Art Informel, or “art without form,” and a cofounder with Karl Otto Götz, Otto Greis, and Heinz Kreutz of the artist’s collective QUADRIGA, Schultze rejected realistic figurative work and formulaic geometric abstraction in favor of works that relied on creative intuition.
           
This lavishly illustrated book features large-scale reproductions of eighty works by Schultze, including boldly colored oil paintings, black-and-white drawings, sculptures, and reliefs, accompanied by Schultze’s poetry and information about his life and work, as well as that of his contemporaries. Together, the selection of works honors the artist’s extensive and varied oeuvre, while also painting a multifaceted picture of his important contribution to the twentieth-century German art scene.
