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).

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).

MALMÉN, PER:
Mönster för marmormålning (Patterns of faux marbling painting). Part one (all published). Stockholm, Gustaf Chelius, 1895.
Large folio. (39 x 54 cm). Pp. (4). With ten lithographed plates of different kinds of marbles. Text leaves with some marginal tears and some plates with a few spots in margins and some plates with tears at the outer margins but overall a very good copy. Original half cloth on grey boards, cotton ties, lightly rubbed. Title in German ("Marmormalereien") printed in black on upper cover. (We have not been able to find any other copy with German titled wrappers). First and only edition of this scarce book, the first of its kind in Sweden. Per Malmn (1852-1926) studied at the Acadmie Bertillion in Paris in the 1870s and became a prominent faux marbling painter. According to rumours, he conducted several marbleizing works at the Louvre but it has not been proven mainly because the artists did not sign their works at that time. This impressive manual was used at the Technical School in Stockholm where Malmn taught for many years. The plates depict several kinds of marbles titled: Vert de Mer; Jaune de Sienne; Chateau-Landon, Rance; St. Anne; Marbre de Kolmrden, Granit; Portor; Bleu Fleurl, Rance and; Breche Violette. The text explains methods of creating the various stone patterns. Ref.: Fredrik Thrnqvist: "Marmoristen & Mlarmstaren Per Malmn" 2011.

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.
