Chandelier, ca. 1925
Raised on his father’s horse farm in Hungary, Diederich’s preoccupation with animals began with making paper cutouts as a child, reinforced by stints as a cowboy in the American West. He also modernized the silhouette in domestic ironwork, mixing it with American folk art elements, to produce stylized representations, often of animals.
