Two cabinets designed by Koloman Moser travelled to New York, to the exhibition dedicated to the master at The Neue Galerie. Titled Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897-1907, the exhibition is on view from May 23-September 2, 2013, and will be shown later at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston as well.

The show is a monographic exhibition devoted to the Austrian artist, designer, and Wiener Werkstätte co-founder Koloman Moser (1868-1918). The exhibition surveys the sum of Moser’s decorative arts career, comprising important interior design commissions, examples of graphic design, furniture, textiles, jewelry, metalwork, glass, and ceramics, many of which are illustrated by rare preparatory drawings and prints.

In 1961, the furniture collection of the Museum of Applied Arts was enriched by a highly significant ensemble of art objects: approximately thirty pieces from the collection of samples amassed by the Budapest furniture manufacturer Miksa Schmidt (1861-1935), who was of Austrian descent. The most notable part of the material was represented by especially fine decorative furniture by artists of the Vienna Sezession group. This collection includes several pieces by Koloman Moser (1868-1918), a leading personality in the group. The objects can be studied in our collection database.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue, which can be preview on the website of Prestel Verlag.
