- Full Description
At the end of the nineteenth century, artist and professor Anton Seder was appointed founding director of Strasbourg’s College of Decorative Arts. Seder (German, 1850-1916) developed the school as an influential artistic force, creating work that bridged French and German artistic styles and contributed to the development of Art Nouveau. He published Die Pflanze in Kunst und Gewerbe (The plant in art and trade), two volumes of two hundred images, stunning in their artistry and graceful depiction of nature. Here are 12 of the finest plates from that rare folio edition.
One hundred and thirty years after its publication, this visual tour of plants from around the world represents some of the most vibrant work of the era. A copy of Die Pflanze is held in the collections of the British Library; twelve of its works are shown in this calendar.
