[COSTUMES FOR "WALZER AUS WIEN" / THEATERKUNST HERMANN J. KAUFMANN].
[A collection of 26 water colour drawings depicting costumes for the pasticcio "Walzer aud Wien"]. About 1930-6.
. Comprises 26 plates (26 x 22 cm) with 31 costume drawings painted in water colours with notes and numbers in pencil. The notes refer to the operetta characters and possibly Swedish artists who were famous at that time. A label "Theaterkunst Hermann J. Kaufmann" pasted on the reverse of the plates. Housed in a specially-made box.The pasticcio "Walzer aus Wien" arranged by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and with music by Johann Strauss (father and son) was first performed at the Vienna Stadttheater in 1930. The following year it was restaged in London as "Waltzes from Vienna" and a French version entitled "Valses de Vienne" was produced in Paris. The successful operetta was based on the rivalry between Strauss the elder and Strauss the younger. We have not been able to find any Swedish performance but this set of drawings listing Swedish artists indicates that such a plan existed, even if it was never implemented. We don't know who made the drawings but the Kaufmann labels suggest that they used to belong to them. Theaterkunst Hermann Kaufmann, founded in Berlin 1907, became the world's biggest costume house for theatre, opera, and later also film productions. In the 1930s the company expanded internationally but in 1936 Hermann Kaufmann had to sell it due to political pressure.

 [MS OF JAPANESE TEXTILE DESIGNS]., Echigoya Magobei. No place, (Tokyo?) about mid to late 1700s.
[MS OF JAPANESE TEXTILE DESIGNS].
Echigoya Magobei. No place, (Tokyo?) about mid to late 1700s.
. This exquisite design manual (21 x 31 cm) contains eighteen leaves folded in the oriental manner. Original blind-pressed blue paper covers, rubbed. The album comprises 35 water colour illustrations depicting different flower patterns, of which one design covers two pages depicting phoenixes and flowers, sprinkled in gold. Hand-written captions in Japanese and the name Echigoya Magobei is written on the inside of the rear cover. Echigoya was a large gofukuya (kimono) shop founded in 1673 in Nihonbashi (Tokyo). Later this shop was incorporated with the Mitsukoshi Department store. We believe this manual functioned as a shop's customer manual or rather an "idea book" of different designs for ordering kimonos, obi belts or other types of textiles. This type of handmade design manual was later replaced by woodblock-printed zuan-ch books. The illustrations are finely drawn and painted in soft and delicate colours by a skilled artist(s). It is a unique, well-preserved specimen of a Japanese pattern book from the 18th century.
