Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte, 1910-1932 by Angela Völker( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Textiles of the Wiener Werkstatte, 1910-1932 presents selections from the original gouache drawings, pattern books and about 20,000 samples now in the collection of the Austrian Museum for applied Arts, Vienna - a truly remarkable archive of most of the over 1,800 recorded fabric designs. These range from the early rounded naturalistic motifs of Art Nouveau to later angular geometric designs associated with Art Deco, their history and development being fully documented in invaluable archival and documentary records. A wealth of reproductions, many in colour, are supplemented by an exhaustive catalogue and a concordance of artists and pattern names, as well as contemporary photographs of the uses of printed and woven textiles in fashion and interior decoration, both private and public, including exhibition pavilions and the Wiener Werkstatte's own showrooms
Koloman Moser : designing modern Vienna 1897-1907 by Koloman Moser( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his short career, Koloman Moser became a towering figure in Viennese culture. His varied work in interior and graphic design, furniture, textiles, jewelry, metalwork, glass, and earthenware helped usher in the modern era. This book surveys the entirety of Moser's oeuvre. It examines his work as a graphic designer and his involvement with the Vienna Secession, with special focus given to his role as an illustrator for the journal 'Ver Sacrum (Sacred Spring)'. Moser's forays into textile design and ceramic work are also introduced. The book features his designs for the Vienna Secession, Thonet Brothers, and the Mautner family, among others that characterize his early modern style. The book also explores Moser's seminal role as a founding member of the Vienna Workshops, along with architect Josef Hoffmann and patron Fritz Waerndorfer.--
Klimt and the women of Vienna's golden age 1900-1918 by Tobias G Natter( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative and generously illustrated book highlights Gustav Klimt's portrayals of women in his work. Klimt was a central figure in Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century, and a crucial link between nineteenth-century Symbolism and Modernism. His sensual portrayals of women are among his most celebrated works and the focus of this book
Verletzliche Beute : spätantike und frühislamische Textilien aus Ägypten( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most Coptic textiles, ancient and early Islamic fabrics unearthed of burial grounds and other archeological sites in Egypt in the 19th century, are woven woolen or linen goods. These items - including curtains, blankets, pillows, tunics, mantle cloths, and a wide range of accessories - produced between the 3rd and 8th centuries convey a vivid impression of the diversity of textile production during the period." "This new genre of archeological find was presented for the very first time in 1883 at what is now the MAK in Vienna, accompanied by a catalogue compiled by its discoverers - Orientalist Josef von Karabacek and art dealer Theodor Graf. The MAK purchased the core of Graf's collection that same year." "Today, this significant collection of Coptic textiles encompasses more than 1,000 objects. The 114 objects selected for presentation in this book offer a representative overview. Each is described in detail and archeologically classified, and weaving methods are discussed."--Jacket
Die orientalischen Knüpfteppiche im MAK, Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst, Wien by Angela Völker( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On account of its focus on unique 16th- and 17th-century Safavid (Persia, Iran) and Mamluk (Egypt, Kairo) carpets and their specific provenances, the collection of Oriental carpets of the MAK-Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna-is one of the most famous of its kind. However, the museum never appointed a specialized curator for its Orient Collection; this is perhaps one of the reasons why an inventory catalog did not appear until 2001. Most of the world-famous pieces originally belonged to the Imperial House of Habsburg and ultimately found their way into the museum after the end of the monarchy. In 1868, the museum itself began collecting in this sector. The carpets from a third source, the "Kaiserliches Königliches Handels Museum" [Imperial Royal Austrian Trade Museum], were purchased in 1907. This diverse background has had a formative influence on the specific structure of the Vienna collection. Mamluk Carpets are among the highlights of the Viennese collection, especially celebrated for the sole silk Mamluk Carpet existing in the world today. Equally famous and precious are the 16th-century silk Hunting Carpet, a Herat Scrolling Vine and Animal Carpet, a so-called Portuguese Carpet, several Isfahan carpets, carpets from the Ottoman court workshop, among them the Vienna niche rug and an Indian landscape carpet, also the renowned Indian Millefleur carpet. The catalogue contains the one hundred-and-fifty pieces from the Vienna collection starting with five Mamluk Carpets, followed by five Ottoman pieces (Turkey, Istanbul), one small so-called chessboard carpet, nineteen Anatolian carpets and fifteen Iranian carpets from different regions. There are four Indian rugs and rug fragments and seventeen rugs from Central Asia, also one Moroccan piece. The catalogue meticulously characterizes every carpet and locates and dates every piece. It states the provenance and measurements, also important technical details such as the thread material of warp, weft and knots, the knot count, and the condition of sides and ends of each rug. Every carpet is shown in full length. The most important ones are pictured with several details. The introduction describes the history of the Vienna Carpet Collection, followed by extensive captions to every carpet in the collection. The catalogue continues with a list of lost pieces, a glossary, an extensive bibliography, and finishes with the concordance of the catalogue entri
