This is a Drawing. We acquired it in 1988. Its medium is brush and gouache, graphite on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Maria Likarz-Strauss was one of the most prolific designers for the Wiener Werkst├Ątte, creating her first design for them in 1912. Her designs frequently featured geometric patterns of stylized floral motifs rendered in vivid, saturated colors.

This object was catalogued by Karin Zonis and Michelle Jackson.
