Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration #24

Continuing the delve into back numbers of Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration, the German periodical of art and decoration. Volume 24 covers the period from April 1909 to September 1909, and this is the penultimate edition that I’ll be posting samples from. The checkerboard designs of the Wiener Werkstätte are still being featured in this number but the focus here is on pictorial works rather than interior design. As before, anyone wishing to see these samples in greater detail is advised to download the entire number at the Internet Archive. There’ll be a final volume of DK&D next week.

A jewellery box by Koloman Moser. The versatility of this designer continues to astonish me.

More of Paul Bürck’s curious mythological scenes.

Another of those “Is this intentionally homoerotic?” pieces. Whoever Hermann Häschke was, this is his sole contribution to DK&D and there’s nothing to be discovered about him online.

This edition ends with several works by Symbolists from the Low Countries. Two of the examples from Jan Toorop (above and below) are ones I hadn’t seen before. The piece above is nothing like his usual stylised figures.

George Minne’s figures adopt similar poses to those in his sculptural work.

    Thank you so much for sharing the image of the creation of Erda by the Aesir by Paul Buerck, it’s beautiful. Which issue exactly of Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration is it from?. Could you post a higher resolution image, please?

    Hi Tancredi. I mentioned in the opening paragraph that all these pages are from DK&D #24. You can view the pages individually here (with the ability to zoom into each one):
