Description

The lively geometric pattern on our Klimt Ballpoint Pen is based on a printed textile by Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 18621918) in the Museums collection. In 1905, the Wiener Werksttte began producing printed and woven textiles, many designed by fine artists such as Klimt. For nearly 30 years, the workshops produced refined and graphically striking designs, distinctive in their use of flat shapes and bold colors and often incorporating folk art, geometric and architectural motifs, and floral repeats.

Ballpoint, black ink, medium point type, 1mm tip. Twist action. Brass barrel and clip with printed lacquer and silver overlay. 5 1/4''L. Gift boxed.

Refillable. Uses Schmidt P900 or standard Parker refill.

Art History

Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 18621918) was a leader of the Sezession (Secession), an association of artists founded in 1897 to challenge the prevailing academic conservatism prevalent in turn-of-the- century Vienna. Including the architect-designer Josef Hoffmann, and the artist-designer Koloman Moser, the group sought to promote contemporary culture and arts, blurring distinctions between fine and applied arts through their concept of the Gesamtkunstwerkthe cross-disciplinary total work of art. Furthering this approach, in 1903 Hoffmann founded the Wiener Werksttte (Vienna Workshops), a designers cooperative based on the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, which strove to provide a wide range of well-designed, often handmade products for a sophisticated audience. Their workshops could supply everything from an architectural framework to the smallest decorative accessory. The commercial success of the company was such that by the early 1920s they had shops in Paris, Zurich, and New York.
