"Everything's right, and so is the opposite" was the philosophy of the artist Kurt Schwitters, who died in England, an exile from Hitler's Germany. Painter, poet, advertising agent, cabaret artists, and a talented all-rounder, his wildly unorthodox life and works are presented in this biography. The book not only explores Schwitters life but also the background to some of his greatest works. It contains much information about his personal life and places him into an historical context as one of a select group of artists who for over a decade fought a battle against the ever-advancing threat of a Nazi dictatorship.
