His ecclectic style is not the result of irrational enthusiasms or contemporary affections; nor does it display the arid mimicry that prevails in may modern art circles. It is a lucid, thoughtful, elegant definition of the oeuvre of a great 20th century painter who mirrors over and over again the mysterious joie de vivre and cyclic continuity of humanity. Schoneberg's power to enhance, enrich and extend the meaning of life was described years ago by Bernard Berenson, Italy's great art historian, as the primary function and role of art"
Phyllis Barton,Southwest Art,
Archetypal Artist of the 21st Century

"The painter Schoneberg: an incomparable master of draughtsmanship and color"
Genvieve Viel-Mazel,L'Espoir, France

Jean Derghel,Le Provencal, France

"The newest painting he calls "Fable" is a chaste nude-something that is completely Maine. the painting is a colorful impressionistic piece with the air of a Manet about it"
Joyce Turrell,Journal Tribune, Maine

"More than 60 attorneys, judges, and friends attended the formal unveiling of Schoneberg's new portrait of Chief District judge William F. Ingram in the San Jose Federal Courthouse, and there simply wasn't enough time to praise the judge, who was visibly touched by the presentation. After a standing ovation, The Portrait was moved to the Federal Court Library where it was hung in the left alcove. Schoneberg's Portrait of Peckham hangs in the opposite alcove."
Jennifer Pittman,San Jose Post

A sentiment of Van Goghs comes to mind. In a note to Gaugin, Vincent said that artists should work like sailors towing the line together since all lines ultimately lead to the same source. As unlikely as it may seem in this world of commerce and PR, Schoneberg ingenuosly does just that - a fact which may be of only passing interest to art collectors, but which is a rare quality of endearment to his fellow artists.
Arthur Secunda monograph,S.C.Schoneberg, Duveen Editions

"He feels that he is ecclectic in the same manner as was Picasso. From the body of his work it is clear that he is equally prodigious. In his immense murals, including a recent work commissioned by Cortaulds Aerospace ( in which Schoneberg used collage extensively), he has left a mark. However, perhaps the greatest gift of all he offers is his love of the world"
Susan Lynn Solomon,Sun Storm Fine Arts Magazine, Winter 1996

"These hieroglyphs are often obvious, sensual, shocking, or absurd. The personal mirror image is transformed again and again through myth into a suprapersonal metaphor. A psychological pilgrimage opens inner land non-manifest in easily recognizable forms. What remains is the living question between the crystallized fact of the work of art, and the initial movement towards expression. Hidden between is the paradox of creation, the Void before which all images are silent."
