Overview

A bibliophilic treasure for every Art Nouveau enthusiast and admirer of Olbrich.

An unrevised reprint of the second edition of 1904's Ideen von Olbrich
In 1899 Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse and by Rhine summoned Josef Maria Olbrich (1867-1908) - and six other artists - to the newly founded Mathildenhöhe Artists' Colony in Darmstadt. It was here that a very productive phase began for Olbrich, although it would come to an end all too soon with his untimely death in 1908.

The first edition of Ideen von Olbrich was published in 1900, attesting to the supreme success of his work in Vienna up to 1899, which he dedicated 'in reverence and in gratitude to his Grand Duke'. This new publication is an unrevised reprint of the second edition of 1904, with the addition of many hitherto unknown examples of works and sketches from Olbrich's time in Darmstadt. The book is now published again in its original format to commemorate this great artist, around 100 years after his death.
