“Fensterblatt” - (Monstera Deliciosa, Swiss Cheese plant)
Henriette Manckiewicz was an awarded, and in her time famous Jewish Vienna artist and salonière, best known for her large embroidered needle paintings (“panneaus”) and her close friendship with Gustav Mahler.
She was represented (with Emil Orlik) in the second, 1899, Jahresmappe published by the Vienna “Verein für vervielfaltigende Kunst” with two graphic works after her original works. Hardly any examples of her work are delivered to our times, not even in the Internet.
Her Monstera (unknown medium) is reminding of Matisse’s later designs and, who knows….., may even have inspired him.
