Stars, Feathers, Tassels:
The Wiener Werkstätte Artist Felice Rix-Ueno (1893–1967)

Edited by: MAK , Lilli Hollein and Anne-Katrin Rossberg

Felice Rix-Ueno studied under Josef Hoffmann, a co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte (1903–1932). Inspired by the Japanese formal language, she formed her own style, which was expressed in particularly imaginative fabric and wallpaper patterns, fashion and home accessories, and wall paintings.

After her marriage to the Japanese architect Isaburo Ueno, she moved to Japan in 1926. There they created joint works that received much attention, such as the Star Bar in Kyoto, which was shown in the famous exhibition Modern Architecture in New York’s MoMa in 1932.

Felice Rix-Ueno, who was already prominently represented in the successful MAK exhibition Women Artists of the Wiener Werkstätte, is given a substantial monographic treatment for the first time outside Japan with this catalog.
