MELA KOEHLER

(1885-1960) Austrian artist who worked in various media most known for her Wiener Werkstätte illustrations including postcard designs.

Original Drawing Signed, pen and black ink on fine mesh paper attached to a board with measurements for reduction written in pencil along edges.

A charming whimsical image of a fantasy figure in a tree playing a flute like instrument to a large pleasing bird, all designed - including the tree - in Wiener Werkstatte style. Koehler has signed in the lower left corner with her squared signature, "Mela Koehler." An intriguing and appealing image, beautifully framed in black wood with cream detail so that the drawing appears set into the frame with archival black mat and conservation glass . Frame measures 14 x 16 inches, image measures 8 x 9 1/4 inches. The drawing is framed close to its black border drawn in ink. The drawing itself is slightly uneven so that the black ink border is framed over at one point. A fine ensemble evoking the Wiener Werkstatte style.
