Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stanislav Szukalski (1893-1987) was a one-of-a-kind artists who possess a great talent but do not achieve fame that would be congruent to that talent. Due to geopolitical upheavals in his native and Poland a large proportion of his work was destroyed. Yet thanks to the efforts of a group of dedicated art patrons art critics, and personal acquaintances, the work of Szukalski is being re-evaluated and actually shown to the public. This book which will act as a catalogue for a show of Szukalski's work at the Laguna Art Museum is the first critical view of his work to come out since 1923. His life and work are examined in a 60 page illustrated essay by Eva & Donat Kirsch, placing them in historical and art history context, followed by a selection of works with commentary by the artist. That commentary gives a first view of the artists idiosyncratic ideology that is explained in more detail in the last part of the book, 'Zermatism.'

Synopsis:

The range of Szukalski s achievements in sculpting, drawing, painting, theorizing, and writing is finally reckoned with in Struggle, the title of both this book and the first major retrospective of his art scheduled for early 2001. The book includes over 100 color and black-and-white photos and illustrations; an essay by Eva Kirsch and Donat Kirsch placing the artist s work in historical and aesthetic context; a foreword by Leonardo DiCaprio and George DiCaprio, who knew him; and the artist s commentary on selected works. I ve been amazed and thrilled by the work of Szukalski. Drew Friedman, The New Yorker
