Koloman MoserFrom wallpaper to postage stamps — Kolo does it all

Koloman Moser was an Austrian artist born on March 30, 1868. Moser contributed to the Vienna Secessionist movement and died on October 18, 1918.

“Of the artists who founded the Vienna Secession, Kolo Moser was unabashedly the boldest and one of those who caused Viennese philistines the most trouble in the early days of the Secession.  Wherever there was something to reform in Viennese arts and crafts – and where wasn’t that needed? – you could find Kolo Moser working away with persistence intrepidness,  taste, and astounding technical skill.”

– Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration XXIII, 1913
