9781425917579: Soldier Artist Monk

Soldier, Artist, Monk is a collection by Brother Placid Stuckenschneider OSB of his thoughts and memories that covers over fifty years. He grew up in Montana, but soon found himself on board a US Troop Ship leaving San Francisco harbor. Pacific Stars and Stripes was the first publication to publish drawings by "Stucky" when he was serving at the end of World War II in the Philippines and Japan.After a brief sojourn at Layton School of Art, Milwaukee, Stuckenschneider entered the Benedictine monastery of Saint John's Abbey in Minnesota to try his vocation. For many years his work enhanced publications of Liturgical Press. Throughout his life as a monk he sought to balance the three primary elements of Benedictine monastic life: Work, Reading and Prayer. Brother Placid died at Collegeville on Saturday, 24 February 2007, less than a month after receiving the first copy of Soldier, Artist, Monk.

About the Author:

Lawrence Stuckenschneider was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1926, but soon moved with his family to Montana. He recounts several incidents of his happy life there that was interrupted by the Second World War.Assigned late in the war to the Philippines, he brought with him a notebook in which he recorded faithfully many scenes of Army life. He responded to the suggestion that he contact Pacific Stars and Stripes and that magazine published many of his wry visual commentaries on the lives of American soldiers in Occupied Japan under the title, "Orientashun."After a few classes at Layton School of Art, Milwaukee, Lawrence went to try his vocation among the Benedictine monks at Saint John's Abbey. Besides work on the abbey's farm, the new "Brother Placid" continued drawing scenes from the life around him.Eventually he began work at Liturgical Press, founded by Saint John's Abbey in 1926. For many years he provided illustrations on Christian themes for the book and serial publications of that Catholic publisher.Later in life, Brother Placid served as an artistic consultant for Midwest parishes called to re-order the sanctuaries of Catholic churches subsequent to Vatican Council II.In retirement, Brother Placid gathered some of the memories of a long, varied life in Soldier, Artist, Monk. It is lavishly illustrated by his own work in black and white with an appendix of color photographs. Brother Placid died at Collegeville on Saturday, 24 February 2007, less than a month after receiving the first copy of Soldier, Artist, Monk. His obituary is online.
