made to perfection: Wiener Werkstätte silver in the Ronald S. Lauder Collection


janis staggs, director of curatorial and manager of publications, neue galerie new york

Outstanding and often unique examples of silver made by the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops) — distinguished for their artistry and craftsmanship — are an important aspect of Ronald S. Lauder’s decorative arts holdings. Notably, many of the original owners of these works represent a veritable “Who’s Who” of Vienna 1900, including Emilie Flöge and Gustav Klimt, Eugenia and Otto Primavesi, and members of the Wittgenstein family. In the past decade, a significant suite of silver objects made by the Wiener Werkstätte for the Palais Stoclet in Brussels has further enhanced the Lauder Collection. Janis Staggs will examine the recent Stoclet accessions and other prominent examples of Wiener Werkstätte silver that comprise the mainstay of the Lauder Collection.
