On the occasion of the 70th birthday of painter Norbert Schwontkowski (1949-2013), the publication “Norbert Schwontkowski, visuel poetry, Collection Brigitte and Udo Seinsoth” is published. From the early eighties until his death in 2013, the artist was closely associated with his first gallery Beim Steinernen Kreuz in Bremen. Over 30 years of collaboration have resulted in a collection that has been comprehensively documented for the first time in this catalog and provides insights into the artist’s development. In addition to canvasses, there are a large number of works on paper, prints and portfolios, artist books and much more. The extensive illustrated publication offers a close-up of the poetic Schwontkowski-sound.
