Quick Reference


Edited by H. Bruckman and J. Meier‐Graefe, this magazine gave considerable coverage to the work of leading European designers, including Ashbee, Benson, Endell, Morris, and van de Velde. Although he mixed in artistic circles in Berlin, Meier‐Graefe was also well acquainted with many designers including Morris and Aubrey Beardsley, whom he met on a visit to England in 1893, Samuel Bing, and van de Velde, whom he met on visits to Paris and Brussels in 1895. In its early years Meier‐Graefe (under a pseudonym) wrote a high proportion of the articles in Dekorative Kunst, although from around 1905 he began to distance himself from such practices.

Subjects: Industrial and Commercial Art.
