Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration #23

An exhibition of Wiener Werkstätte posters and graphics.

Continuing the delve into back numbers of Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration, the German periodical of art and decoration. Volume 23 covers the period from October 1908 to March 1909, and aside from some dull paintings the Wiener Werkstätte continue to dominate proceedings with photographs and graphics from exhibitions of their work; the slow evolution towards Art Deco continues.

As usual, anyone wishing to see these samples in greater detail is advised to download the entire number at the Internet Archive. There’ll be more DK&D next week.

Gustav Klimt turns up again with his most famous work, The Kiss, here named Liebespaar.

Above are poster designs by Carl Otto Czeschka and Franz Zeymer while below is a remarkably elaborate vitrine by Czeschka made from silver and embellished with enamel and moonstones. A much larger, colour view of its present state can be found here.

One of a number of very detailed drawings from a feature on Annie French, a member of the Glasgow Arts and Crafts movement. There’s a small collection of her works here which benefit from being seen in colour.

And another gay artist is featured (although there won’t be any acknowledgement of that). This is a depiction of that perennial gay art theme, Ganymede, by Hans von Marées.
