Unfortunately not on display at the moment
Koloman Moser (1868–1918) was highly successful as a graphic artist. Along with his graphic works regularly featured in the Secession’s magazine Ver Sacrum, Moser designed numerous exhibition posters. Among them is the poster advertising the first Secession exhibition of 1897, which wasn’t used until the fifth presentation Poster Design for the ‘First Major Art Exhibition’ of the Secession. While Moser increasingly employed a geometrical design vocabulary from 1900, for instance in the work Frommes Calendar, the artist still adhered to an entirely floral-linear style in his early posters. These were still dominated by long curved lines and abstracted natural forms into which he embedded letters and figures.
