It has been a while since a publication on a South African artist has been done in such a comprehensive and attractive format as the recent major monograph on Claudette Schreuders, published by Jacana and Prestel. Of its 239 pages, 188 consist of high-quality documentation of the artist's complete oeuvre up to 2011, ending with the series, which makes the publication border on a coffee-table book. Illustrations are included of Schreuders' major works, her sculptures in carved wood, as well as her series of lithographs based on the sculptures, selected commissions, and some thumbnail, preparatory and finished drawings. A handful of photographs are shown of the artist in her studio, with family and in suburban surroundings, covering her thirteen-year-long career as a professional artist which had already commenced at the time of her student days at the Universities of Cape Town and Stellenbosch.
