A very personal view of Franz von Zülow’s artistic output is revealed by this publication on the eponymous exhibition Franz von Zülow: Paper (27 November 2013 – 11 May 2014) which the MAK, Vienna, has dedicated to this Austrian painter and graphic artist on the occasion of his 130th birthday and the 50th anniversary of his death.
Inspired by the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts, the Vienna Secession, and the Wiener Werkstätte, and under the lifelong influence of rural impressions, Franz von Zülow (1883–1963) gave rise to a wide-ranging oeuvre in an unmistakable artistic handwriting.
The versatile Zülow designed fabric and tapestries as well as ceramics, while also developing new graphic techniques and interior decorating concepts. Thanks to the MAK’s direct access to the entire estate, the present publication is able to present a comprehensive biographical look at this artistic personality.
