From fin de siècle Vienna to Kyoto: a primer for getting to know designer Lizzi Rix-Ueno.

Felice “Lizzi” Rix-Ueno (1893–1967) was known for the vibrant works of design she produced from her bases in Vienna, where she was born, and in Kyoto, where she settled after marriage. This collection looks back at her fantastical oeuvre, from wallpaper and wall decorations to cloisonné, textiles, and accessories. Inspiring essay contributions by women who have forged their own expressive path—like Lizzi—in their chosen fields of art, literature, and design add further dimension to the exploration of her appeal.

 

Works presented: wallpaper, wall decorations, cloisonné ware, printed fabrics, accessories, holiday ornaments, picture scrolls, sketchbooks

Includes essays, list of works, and a chronology
