[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.

CHIKANOBU, YïSHó (HASHIMOTO):
"Jidai-Kagami". (Mirror of the Ages). Tokyo, Matsuki Heikichi, Meiji 29-30 (1896-7).
. Folio. Size: 24.8 x 17.8 cm. Leporello-folded album containing 53 pages. With fifty woodcut printed plates, decorated title, index and one additional woodcut page. Text in Japanese. Original silk covered boards, rubbed. Housed in modern cloth folder. Exceptionally beautiful work illustrating women's hairstyles and fashion from the 14th to the late 19th century. Each image depicts a woman with an impeccable hairstyle, make-up and elaborate clothes that are typical of the chosen period. At the top of each page is a picture showing fragments of well-known manuscripts, prints or paintings that are recognizable from each era. All signed Yôshû Chikanobu. The quality of the printing is outstanding. A detailed list of each image is available upon request. Chikanobu (1838-1912) was trained in the Kano school but later changed direction to printmaking. He became one of the leading ukiyo-e artists of his time. Chikanobu used the flat planes and decorative pattern of the ukiyo-e tradition for striking effect, adding luminous colours, especially red, purple, and blue to his compositions. He designed across all genres, from kabuki actors and beauties to military exploits of past and present. In the 1880s, with a new wave of nationalism evoking the past, new designs were created to explore traditional Japanese culture, ethics and heroes. Chikanobu is often called a retrograde modernist, someone whose art works are positioned between old and new. In these prints you can find the longing for the past but still they are unmistakably modern and of their time. Chikanobu creates an outstanding work of absolutely the highest print quality. Rare to find complete.
