The central theme of this monograph is the development op Schoonhoven's oeuvre, from the earliest gouaches in the late 1930s to the last signed relief, made in the early 1990s. This publication places Schoonhoven in an international context, as an influential member of the postwar European avant-garde.
This monograph includes a thorough discussion of Schoonhoven's significance in the international ZERO movement. Attention to the contexts in which he made his drawings and reliefs also offers a new perspective on Schoonhovens live and artistic career. A selection of Schoonhoven's writings on art from the years 1958-1975 convey an intimate sense of the artist's ideas and methods.

This catalogue was published in conjunction with the first significant presentation of Schoonhoven’s work in New York, if not the United States, in over a decade, held at David Zwirner in New York in 2015. Serving as an important contribution to English-language literature on the artist, this extensive exhibition catalogue is anchored by richly detailed plates of his sculptural reliefs and works on paper made primarily between the mid-1950s and early 1970s.
Featuring new scholarship by Antoon Melissen, as well as archival photographs and an illustrated chronology, this publication offers an invaluable introduction to the work of this pioneering champion of the proto-Minimalist tendencies that sprang up in Europe and the United States in the early 1960s.
