Description
This collection primarily consists of prints by Pepi Weixlgärtner-Neutra, an Austrian artist.
Background
Pepi Weixlgärtner-Neutra (1886-1981) was an Austrian artist who concentrated on graphic design, sculpture and enamelwork. She was born Josephine Neutra in Vienna, the eldest sister of Los Angeles-based modernist architect Richard Neutra. She married Arpad Weixlgärtner, a curator at the Kunsthistoriches Museum in Vienna and prominent art historian. She studied sculpture with Anton Hanak in Vienna. Using a style largely inspired by German Expressionism, Pepi became well-known for her graphic prints, produced using such techniques as lithography, vernis mou and woodcuts. After the end of World War II, she lived in Göteborg, Sweden. Starting in the 1960s, she became interested in color enamel techniques and worked on projects with her daughter Elisabeth Söderberg-Weixlgärtner. Mother and daughter jointly exhibited their work in 1964 at the Museum für Kunsthandwerk in Frankfurt (now known as the Museum für Angewandte Kunst). The artist is also known by alternate names including: Josephine Therese Neutra, Josefine Neutra, Josephine Weixlgärtner, Pepi Weixlgärtner and Pepi Neutra.
