Exhibition Features More than 400 Decorative Works by Seminal Viennese Designer
Wide Range of Objects Includes Furniture, Jewelry, Ceramics, Fabrics, and Wallpaper
NEW YORK (July 22, 2002)—On October 11, Neue Galerie New York opens its first major loan exhibition devoted to the decorative arts, "Dagobert Peche and the Wiener Werkstätte." This exhibition, which is on view from October 11, 2002, to February 10, 2003, will fill the third-floor galleries. Peche is much less known today than he was in his own time, when he was described by Josef Hoffmann as "Austria's greatest genius in ornamentation since the days of the Baroque."
