Wagner, Otto
Das Ehrenjahr Otto Wagners in der K.K. Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Wien. Arbeiten seiner Schüler, Projekte, Studien und Skizzen. Edited by Otto Schönthal.
Vienna, Kosmack, 1912. 34 : 26,5 cm. 4 leaves, 56 pages With portrait and many, partly coloured and mounted illustrations. Original half-cloth with title in gold on front cover. Seductive by the outstanding illustrations of parts of the works from Otto Wagners last year as a teacher. "Es sind nahezu fünfundzwanzig Jahre her, seit ich, nicht aus Sucht nach Originalität, sondern vom künstlerischen Katzenjammer getrieben, versuchte, mein baukünstlerisches Schaffen in andere als die bisher betretenen Bahnen zu lenken" (Introduction). With works by Fr. Kaym, A. Roessler, J. Heinisch, K. Reinhart, R. Weis, R. Pokorny, J. Hannisch, R. Wondracek a.o. The illustrations show such utopian project as "Ideal-project to transfer the residence of the pope to Jerusalem" or "Ideal-project for an airport at Aspern", but also partly constructed project as the famous subway stations or some houses in the city of Vienna. - The portrait of Wagner a bit foxed, binding slightly rubbe, otherwise a fine copy. -Very scarce.
