Japanische Vogelstudien. 12 Blätter.
Item ID 16997
Wien, K.K. Österreichischen Handels-Museum, 1895. Folio (45.0 x 33.0 cm). Lithographed pictorial title, and 12 full-colour mounted lithographs. Portfolio with pictorial boards. Rare and fine examples of Japanese bird illustration, apparently collected as inspirational specimens for artists and art students. The lithographed pictorial title by the K.K. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei. Provenance: the front board verso has a small stamp of the Tiroler Glasmalerei. Leaves a bit age-toned, the tipped-in bird prints much better; otherwise a very good, clean copy. We found only one auction record since publication, interestingly, with the same provenance. Not in any major bibliography. A rare work, showing the influence of Japanese Art on western design during the Art Nouveau - Jugendstil period
