Here’s all about our primary artist, with 8 plates and 16 illustrations:

Carl Otto Czeschka (pr. cheska) started his career at the beginning of the Art Nouveau movement in Austria and quickly became one of its most celebrated illustrators, working alongside Klimt and Kolomon Moser, both better known today. By 1908, he had moved with his peers into a style that heralded the coming of Art Deco. His designs are celebrated and presented in major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Neue Galerie, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and virtually every major museum worldwide.

While Czeschka’s Modernist work (post-1908) for the Wiener Werkstatte is well-documented in books today, his earlier Art Nouveau (or Jugendstil, as it was called in Germany and Austria) line art is largely unavailable, except in period materials.

Make no mistake: this is not your traditional Art Nouveau! Czeschka’s illustrations from this period are incredibly beautiful, dark, strange, and macabre. Even the flowery artworks of Czeschka have a weight to them that transcends the simply botanical into bold, dramatic Symbolism.
