First monograph dedicated to the long forgotten German artist Josef Maria Schröder. Starting as a painter during the interwar period, Schröder then developed a ballpoint pen technique with which he produced intensely luminous abstract compositions and portraits of a surrealist/constructivist cast. These late works are featured in this volume, which includes original documents from the artist's estate.
