Secessionista

May 5, 2018—This ravishing photograph, a junk-shop find, was made in New York in 1910, not in fin-de-siècle Vienna. Nonetheless, it suggests the widespread influence of that particular time and place on fashion and art in America.


Secessionista

The poster on the wall is by Ludwig Hohlwein, who was a popular illustrator of the time.


Strauss Woche

It advertises “Strauss Week” in München, Germany, which was Hohlwein’s stomping ground.


Secessionista_reverse

The reverse of the picture indicates that the subject is Mrs. R.T. Willcox at 96th Street in what could only be New York City. Crop marks indicate that it was published in a newspaper or magazine.
