Hidden Impressions: Japonisme in Vienna 1870-1930
Hidden Impressions: Japonisme in Vienna 1870-1930, published by Edition Seitenberg, Vienna, 1990, 445 pages, English/German, hardcover in dust jacket, 11" by 8.5". Bilingual text in English and German. Scarce and exceptional anthology on Japonism in turn-of-the-century Viennese art. The influence of Japanese art composition, motifs, and ornamentation on European Art Nouveau is well documented; this volume is a valuable addition to books on the area, extensively researched and beautifully illustrated and printed. No art collective seemed more entranced by Japanese art than the artists of the Vienna Secession and the Wiener Werkstatte. The illustrations in this volume - over 200, with many in color - demonstrate rich parallels between East and West in art. Includes work by Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, Hiroshige, Koloman Moser, Carl Otto Czeschka, Schiele, Yoshichika, Frank Hohenberger, Adolf Bohm, Josef Frank, and Hugo Henneberg, among others, in diverse media: graphic art, decorative objects, painting, textiles, architecture, and more. Includes some photos of the Viennese World Fair of 1873 and Vienna Secession exhibitions. A scarce and very impressive volume, in superb condition.
