“Das Werk: Gustav Klimt Collotypes and Avant Garde Austrian Pottery” at Jason Jacques Gallery
In 1908, Vienna’s Galerie Miethke arranged to produce a set of collotype prints of 50 of Gustav Klimt‘s most iconic works, called “Das Werk Gustav Klimts.” In its new exhibition, Jason Jacques Gallery pairs these color prints with turn-of-the-century pottery produced in Teplitz, Austria, from the Amphora workshop.
“In the same manner that Klimt incorporated design and ornamental elements into his two-dimensional paintings,” noted the gallery in the exhibition description, “Amphora artists took stylistic inspiration from painting and sculpture to radically transform pottery into an art form of its own.”
Location: Jason Jacques Gallery, 29 East 73rd Street #1
