Catalogue Raisonné

An artist unbound by the conventions of his time, Munich-based painter Peter Schermuly (1997–2007) turned away from abstraction toward an original approach to realism in which he developed color phenomena suitable for a particular painting rather than merely recreating the palette he observed in the world around him.
Peter Schermuly: Catalogue Raisonné brings together a wealth of full-color illustrations to present an overview of the artist’s entire painterly oeuvre. The book includes Schermuly’s well-known oil paintings but also his sketches and wall designs. Together, the works form a long-awaited introduction to the life and work of this important and original figure in twentieth-century art.
