Chronicle is proud to publish the exciting paintings of widely acclaimed German artist Michael Sowa. A miniature pig splashing in a bowl of soup; a duck leading a wheelbarrow down a country lane; a woman gently stroking her daughter's face with a rabbit: take a trip into Sowa's brilliant and darkly comic imagination, where a menagerie of creatures adopt strange personae and pop up in the most unexpected places. In the same realm as Chris Van Allsburg and Maurice Sendak, Sowa's paintings take on the other-worldly look of a whacked-out fairy tale—each work full of irony, a wry Brothers Grimm for grown-ups. These witty and satirical images—a cross between Magritte and The Far Side—are sure to attract a well-deserved and passionate following in the States.

Rarely have I been so at a loss to describe a book. Let me start by saying it is wondrous. That this book of 50 paintings by the German painter Michael Sowa has an otherworldly quality that is prosaic yet profound, hilarious yet numinous, and incongruous yet congruent with deep and mysterious truths. That I will never think of ducks, Christmas, rabbits, or German shepherds in the same way since seeing this book. That I return to it over and over again, and feel compelled to show it to friends and family. And that they -- children and adults alike -- love it too.About the Author:
