Period Paper is pleased to offer a rare and extraordinary 1903 collection of Secessionist color, black and white, and relief prints of posters, flyers and advertising art.
The Vienna Secession (also known as Secessionsstil, or Sezessionsstil in Austria) was a highly varied art movement that contained elements of Art Nouveau. It was formed in 1897 by a group of 19 Vienna artists, led by Gustav Klimt, who were dissatisfied with more conservative and traditional art of the time. Secessionists saw "art as life" and the new style reflected the iconoclastic spirit of turn-of-the-century Vienna. Pieces from this movement are considered highly collectible.
