Episode 20: Carl Schmitt, Painter of Vision--Andrew de Sa

The Catholic Culture Podcast

The American Catholic painter Carl Schmitt (1889-1989) made fascinating innovations in the use of color. He wrote extensively on the artist’s vocation, arguing for seeking holiness through practicing one’s art rather than the other way around, and advocating the three virtues of poverty, humility and purity as a necessity for all artists to follow. He inspired artists in other media, like Hilaire Belloc and Hart Crane. He did all this while raising ten children. Andrew de Sa, the Creative Director at the Carl Schmitt Foundation, educates us about this artist who was content to paint in obscurity for God.
