Camillo Gamnitzer is a selfmate composer, the herald of the new strategic selfmate, which in his eyes bear some resemblance with the musical fugue. Some biographical information can be found on Wikipedia (in German) and a selfportrait on this Austrian problem site and many (438) of his problems here.
Camillo Gamnitzer is the first Austrian problemist to receive the title of Grandmaster in chess composition. His problems are, for obvious reasons, feared by solvers...
