Description

A women's silk kimono with a wonderfully modern pattern.

  • Led by the architect Josef Hoffmann and associates such as Dagobert Peche and Koloman Moser, the Wiener Werkstätte was one of the longest-lasting design movements of the 20th century. As a precursor of Art Deco and the International Style, it drew from movements such as the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau, as well as from traditional folk art.
  • Matilde Flögl, another leading artist of the Werkstätte movement, took a particular interest in African art, weaponry, ceremonial objects and jewelry from that continent.
  • The artist of this kimono has drawn inspiration from Matilde Flögl’s 1928 textile design Chypre for the Wiener Werkstätte, as well as Tuareg veil weights, both pictured here.
