Peter Schmersal is known for his expressive reworking of the traditional genres of the still life, landscape and self-portrait, in which he engages in a compelling contemporary dialogue with the masterworks of western narrative painting. Appropriating and reinventing familiar themes and motifs from the late Medieval period to the Baroque, Schmersal creates his compositions with a gestural language entirely his own.

This Hatje Cantz monograph includes painted landscapes, flowers, still lifes, nudes and portraits alongside texts by Alexander Guy, Thomas Hirsch and Oliver Zybok.
