Curator Joann Skrypzak traces the development of Viennese modernism from turn-of-the-century Jugendstil (as Art Nouveau is still known in German-speaking countries) to early twentieth-century Expressionism and interwar Art Deco. This exhibition catalog features 103 fine and decorative art works produced by the Vienna Secession and Wiener Werkstätte movements between the 1890s and 1930s and includes an essay by Barbara Copeland Buenger. The fully illustrated catalog presents textiles, furniture, ceramics, paintings and prints, books, metalwork, glass, and a variety of other objects from a private midwestern collection.
