I would loved to have copied one or the other to show you but it seems the British Museum is strict about use of their images, but please do have a look!

Some other art I’m feeling enthusiastic about just now is that of Mela Koehler, who was part of the Wiener Werkstätte between 1903-1932 and whose style I think is gorgeous, if typical for the age… MelaKoehler+WW522+19111+metmseum Is it a coincidence that the little dog there is a spaniel?! Never seen a white one, tho’!
