Erich Schmid belongs to the great unrecognized Austrian exiled artists. Because of his escape from the Nazis in 1938 his work is mostly forgotten – a fate many emigrated Jewish artist-colleagues met. Until today his paintings appear rarely in exhibitions or on the art market, a fact that stands in marked contrast to the quality of his oeuvre. More than other local painters Schmid seeked the artistic analysis of the urban cityscape, in which he found a projection surface for expressive mental states. Artistic analogies and even friendships with great artists such as Kokoschka and Kubin make him even more outstanding.
