For nearly 40 years, Jan Schoonhoven worked on developing his reliefs (made of papier-mâché, paper and cardboard) alongside his job as a civil servant at the Dutch Post Office. For the first time, this monograph places Jan Schoonhoven in an international context, as an active and influential player in the European post-war developments in art. The early years are covered in detail: the influences of, for example, Paul Klee and Jackson Pollock, and his participation in the ‘Nederlandse Informele Groep’ during the late 1950s. Schoonhoven’s involvement in the Dutch Nul group and the international ZERO movement is also highlighted.
