About The Artist:

Established in 1903 by architect Josef Hoffmann and his artist friend Koloman Moser, the Wiener Werkstätte ("Vienna Workshops") was a production community of visual artists in Vienna, Austria bringing together architects, artists and designers. The enterprise evolved from the Vienna Secession, founded in 1897 as a progressive alliance of artists and designers. From the start, the Secession had placed special emphasis on the applied arts, and its 1900 exhibition surveying the work of contemporary European design workshops prompted Hoffmann and Moser to consider establishing a similar enterprise. In 1903, the company began operations with a range of products including leather goods, enamel, jewelry, postcards and ceramics. Each piece was stamped with the trademark of the Wiener Werkstätte and the monogram of the designer or craftsman who created it. The company closed in 1932 after product shortages in Europe and financial difficulties due to the depression post World War I.
