Koloman Moser: Universal Artist between Klimt and Hoffmann

Edited by Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, Elisabeth Schmuttermeier and Christian Witt-Dörring, MAK Vienna.

 

Kolo Moser was one of the most important universal artists in fin-de-siècle Vienna and is one of the leading representatives of Art Nouveau. His oeuvre includes painting, graphics, and crafts, as well as designs for fashion, lighting, and furniture, stage decoration, stained glass windows, book illustrations, and even banknotes.

Blazing a trail for the art of his age, he was a founding member of the Vienna Secession and, together with the architect Josef Hoffmann and the industrialist Fritz Wärndorfer, he established the Wiener Werkstätte in 1903. The objective of this collective of fine artists was to realize the Gesamtkunstwerk or total work of art at the highest caliber of arts and crafts. Some 400 objects, presented systematically and explained with essays, open up a new perspective on his impressive oeuvre.

Published for the exhibition 'Koloman Moser: Universal Artist between Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann', at the MAK Vienna.
