Moskowitz) was born in Budapest in 1885. She became one of the most prominent Hungarian poets of the 20th century, as well as a celebrated painter, graphic artist and designer. She was a key figure in the Hungarian avant-garde, a member of the art movement "The Eight" (A Nyolcak). Her painting and embroideries drew much of their inspiration from Hungarian folklore and folk art. In 1939 she emigrated to the United States where she continued her work in art education and opened her own school of painting. She died in New York City in 1966. (This work is printed by the Kner Publishing House as a series of three children's books in the same format, of which one is "Testvrorszg" by Bla Balzs).

 SÉGUY, EUGÉNE ALAN:, Papillons. Paris, Tolmer editeur 13 Quai d'Anjou, ca 1928.
SÉGUY, EUGÉNE ALAN:
Papillons. Paris, Tolmer editeur 13 Quai d'Anjou, ca 1928.
Folio (33 x 45 cm). Pp. (4) and 20 pochoir plates including 16 of butterflies (depicting 80 different varieties) and 4 with decorative abstract patterns. As issued loose in original cloth backed white boards with cloth ties. Upper cover decorated with a large coloured butterfly in pochoir and lettered in silver and black. First and only edition of this spectacular Art Nouveau design album. The plates depict exotic and intensely coloured butterflies from India, Africa, the Himalayas, South-East Asia, China, New Zealand and South America, enlarged in size, but reproduced faithfully in form and colour in a mixed technique of collotype and stencil in watercolour or gouache. Eugne Sguy (1889-1985) was one of the foremost French designers at the beginning of the 20th century, working both in the Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles. He produced eleven albums of illustrations and designs, of which this portfolio is considered the most magnificent. Besides being an artist Sguy was trained as an entomologist, eventually becoming Director of the Laboratory for General and Applied Entomoloy at the Muse National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. In the Papillon collection he presents images of exotic butterflies in a very sensitive as well as artistic way. The pochoir technique is especially suited to the subject, allowing the artist to convey the intensity of colour in the butterflies' wings. The four last plates depict 16 decorative abstract designs derived from the butterflies' shimmering patterns. A most wonderful copy.

Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
Narrow folio portfolio. Size: 21 x 45 cm. As issued on heavy paper. With 51 numbered pages printed on recto only on (17) folded sheets + 2 pages and one blank. Comprising the text of the play "Le coeur gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delanay. Comprising seven theatre costumes by Sonia Delaunay which are colour reproductions of the gouache maquettes made for the performance at Thtre Michel in 1923, two more double page lithographs (one issued as extra title page and one with two costumes) and three lithographed decorations in the text. Original card covers with striking design in black, red and cream. Housed in specially made plexiglas slipcase. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delanuay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and rare work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the renowned Roman born writer and artist who was known for being one of the central figures of the anti-establishment Dada movement. His noted play "Le cur gaz" was first staged as part of the 1921 "Dada Salon" at the Galerie Montaigne in Paris. It was written as a parody of classical drama in the form of an absurd dialogue between characters named after human body parts; mouth, ear, eye, nose, neck and eyebrow (Tzara himself). The second stage production, also titled "Le Cur barbe" was performed at Thtre Michel in July 1923. Sonia Delaunay, the famous Ukrainian-born French artist, designed and costumed the production, creating bright coloured eccentric geometrically-shaped costumes of thick cardboard. The play has been viewed as the final event in the evolution of Dada as a cultural movement.
