Readers of the important critical study are privileged to be guided by the wisdom and insights of renowned authority Edward Lucie-Smith as he explores the art of one of the major Swiss painters of our day. Hermann Alfred (H.A.) Sigg (born June 29, 1924) has employed "an impeccable means of physical presentation to make the image radically new" (Lucie-Smith). Inspired by nature, meditations, contemplations, dreams and spiritual magic, Sigg's visual poetry is a continual oscillation between the Modernist tradition and a much earlier Romantic one. Color reproductions of ninety unique and distinctive paintings, collages and sculptures, spanning Sigg's seventy-year career, populate this cogent, edifying and revelatory book.
