Czech artist Mathilde Flögl studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule, where she studied under Josef Hoffmann and Oskar Strnad. She joined the Wiener Werkstätte in 1916 and created decorative arts in numerous categories including textile, wallpaper, book design, posters, ceramic, glass and enameling. For the 25th anniversary of the Wiener Werkstätte, Flögl wrote and published The Wiener Werkstätte, 1903-1928: The Evolution of the Modern Applied Arts Exhibitions. In the 1920s, she was a member of the Wiener Frauenkunst - a group of women artists who broke away from the patriarchal art world and held many exhibitions in Vienna. She was also a member of the Austrian Werkbund, for whom she designed this exhibition poster with its strong geometric and typographic Bauhaus influences. Rare. We could find no other copy at auction. Denscher p. 111.
