The art of Kozma Lajos, 1884–1948


Will at 50 Watts points the way to a set of line drawings by Kozma Lajos, a Hungarian artist better known for his later work as an architect and designer. What strikes me about these illustrations is their similiarity to the graphics being produced by German and Austrian artists a few years earlier, some of whom have been turning up in the recent samples from Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration. There’s the same Klimt-like decorative detail and a lack of perspective. See the series here and further illustration work at the end of this page.
