ZÜLOW, FRANZ VON:
Die 12 Monate. Originallithographien. Vienna, Druck und Verlag der Wiener Werkstätte, no date (1912).
. 4to. Comprises thirteen original colour lithographs, as issued, loose in publisher's black cloth portfolio illustrated with original lithographs by the artist on covers, abstract hand-painted front paste down and inner flaps. Housed in a specially-made chemise by Atelier Devauchelle. First edition printed in a very small number. A fine, complete set of this stunning work by Franz von Zülow comprising in total fifteen original colour lithographs; one plate for each month, one plate depicting the four seasons and two plates pasted on the covers. The fanciful lithographs have multiple pictures of people and animals placed in everyday and festive contexts depending on the month. Zülow uses a folkloristic and dynamic style with very expressive colours on a decorative flatness, influenced by the early Viennese Secession. Franz von Zülow (1883-1963) was a renowned Austrian painter, designer, graphic artist and muralist who worked at the Wiener Werkstätte from 1905 onwards and joined the Vienna Secession in 1908. The Wiener Werkstätte (1903-32) was a productive cooperative of skilled artisans (including architects, artists and designers) in Vienna dedicated to the production of modern decorative arts. The declared objective of the Wiener Werkstätte was to break through everyday life with remarkable artistic and aesthetic products. Two plates are narrowly cut but overall it's a lovely set of an impressive work of art. Rare. Ref. Heller, Die Bunte Welt, 455. Schweiger, Wiener Werkstätte, p. 185.
