This illustrated volume is the fourth monograph to date, in which Prof. Johannes Schreiter has recorded his development as an artist in collaboration with the art historian, painter and freelance writer Gunther Sehring in the years 2011 to 2017. This means his work includes numerous prints and designs with accompanying texts, which the internationally renowned artist has collected and produced in recent years. Finished works that were also presented as drafts in his previous book can also be found in this latest volume.
Anyone who takes a closer look at the artist’s development will soon recognize his preference for clean lines and his design of church windows, which date back to his illness in 1983. He returned seriously ill from a teaching assignment in New Zealand and his doctors had already given up all hope for him. During this difficult time, he turned to faith, which helped him recover and had an enduring influence on his art as well. Since then, his glass windows have represented a visual expression of Bible verses with his very personal, artistic signature.
