Exhibition Overview


This exhibition, on view from October 4, 2018 to January 21, 2019, brings together a selection of miniature jeweled masterworks by the leading artists of the Wiener Werkstätte (Viennese Workshops), including the firm’s co-founders Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser. It also includes examples by Carl Otto Czeschka, Maria Likarz-Strauss, Dagobert Peche, and Max Snischek. These wearable works of art were among the most coveted designs produced by the Wiener Werkstätte and many were made only once. A highlight of the presentation will be an impressive array of Hoffmann’s square brooches, which have been favorably compared to Gustav Klimt’s canvases. This presentation offers a unique opportunity to view these treasures, which are of the highest quality and extremely rare. “Wiener Werkstätte Jewelry” is curated by Janis Staggs, Neue Galerie New York Director of Curatorial.
