“Stanisłav Szukalski (13 December 1893 – 19 May 1987) was a Polish-born painter and sculptor who became a part of the Chicago Renaissance. He also developed the pseudoscientific-historical theory of Zermatism, positing that all human culture was derived from post-deluge Easter Island.” (Wikipedia)
Ernst Fuchs, one of the founders of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, wrote 20 years ago:
“Szukalski’s work stands up overwhelmingly next to that of the greatest masters of all styles and cultures.” When Fuchs saw Szukalski’s remarkable sketchbooks, he exclaimed that these should be published one day. Well, his wish is our command!
A major US network will air a feature-length documentary about this outstanding artist towards the end of the year, produced by a very prominent Hollywood personality.
The introduction to the sketchbook has been penned by weirdo oddball genius Charles Schneider, connoisseur of all things Szukalski.
We have compiled a facsimile of his most remarkable sketches from his 1924 diary plus some very personal and highly erotically charged and unseen drawings from his correspondence and vintage photos. The book will be bound in red leatherette, blocked in gold and printed on fine age-toned art paper.
Price for this unique hardcover book is 49 Euro plus 7 Euro for trackable worldwide airmail shipping.
