Edited by Samuel A. Schmitt

Carl Schmitt expressed the beauty of truth in painting in the way that the deepest spiritual writers expressed in words the truths about God and creation. In 43 paintings selected to show the broad range of his work, this book presents not only art, but his ideas about art and life. Scepter is proud to join with the Carl Schmitt Foundation to present a selection of his work for the first time, from private and public collections. It arrives just ahead of the 125th anniversary of the author’s birth in Warren, Ohio.

Carl Schmitt (1889–1989) produced hundreds of paintings from landscape and still life to portraits of his wife and nine children as well as poets, artists, and Marian and religious themes. His over 500 works painted in the U.S. and Europe are scattered through museums from the National Gallery in Washington DC to private collections worldwide. His painted with extreme precision to present art as an expression of the beauty that lies within all creation. He was a man of deep faith, a lifelong Catholic, who saw God in everything he studied and drew.
