Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0998402001, Perfect Paperback)

Carl Schmitt (1889-1989) was an extraordinary American artist. He combined the weight and substance of the European masters with the light and color of the Impressionists to create luminous paintings found in museums and private collections around the world. More than an outstanding artist, Schmitt pondered deeply and wrote articulately about what he was striving to achieve in his art. In his long life Schmitt produced a library of diverse writings with topics ranging from the fine arts, history, science, economics, and metaphysics, to the roles of family, society, and the human person. "The Conscience of Beauty" is a collection of over seventy of his essays, most published here for the first time. The editor of the volume, Samuel Schmitt, is executive director of the Carl Schmitt Foundation (www.carlschmitt.org) and authour of "Carl Schmitt: The Vision of Beauty."
