Size: 14 x 22 in./35.5 x 56 cm Lamson, Wolffe, Boston Although set in Germany, Miss Träumerei: A Weimar Idyl was written and published only in America. While the plot is not readily known, the title itself lends much to what the story is probably about: Traumerei not only is the name of a romantic piano piece by Schumann, but when translated means dreaming. The author is, in fact, better known as a musician than as a writer, having studied under Liszt during the late 1850s, as well as founding the famous Bagby Musical Mornings at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The image itself reflects Reed's fondness for the then-popular Japanese style of printing, with its flat areas of simple color and the diagonally-jutting chrysanthemums. Ethel Reed (1874-1912) was an internationally recognized American graphic artist. In 1890s, her works received a critical acclaim in America and Europe.

Weisman Art Museum of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. Order online by additing this or any other item to the cart and checking out.
