Portrait of a Forgotten Master

A veteran of the First World War and a casualty of the second, Prague-born Erwin Schulhoff was a member of the vanguard of creatives who bore witness to a rapidly changing world.  Before his untimely death, Schulhoff experimented with his musical voice, writing works informed by dance rhythms, absurdist elements of the dada movement, jazz and expressionism.
