In 1905, the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops) began producing printed and woven textiles, many designed by artists such as the Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt (1862–1918). For nearly 30 years, the workshops produced refined and graphically elegant designs, distinctive in their use of flat shapes and bold colors and often incorporating geometric and floral motifs. Our eye-catching bangle is based on an original printed textile (ca. 1920) in the Museum’s collection that was designed by Klimt.
