The author Peter Voss-Andreae and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gregor Wedekind will lead a discussion about the work of Emil Orlik and provide insight into the four volumes on the artist’s woodcuts, etchings and lithographs. In addition, a selection of original prints from the author’s collection will be on view.
Emil Orlik (1870-1932) was an all-round talent, a member of the Secession in Vienna and a professor in Berlin. He is particularly known for his graphics – especially portraits of famous personalities. Orlik also mastered the art of woodcutting, learning the technique from Japanese masters on a trip to Japan. Now, for the first time, the comprehensive catalog raisonné of Emil Orlik’s graphic works has been published in four volumes, a magnificent edition of clothbound books in a slipcase.
