Why this is a
Masterpiece

More than 8,000 katagami have been preserved from the Heinrich Siebold Collection. The Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry defined ornament as one of its main objectives in collecting; moreover, Viennese applied arts of the same period focused strongly on surface ornamentation: the artists of the Secession and later the Wiener Werkstätte were greatly influenced in their work by Japanese patterns.

History of the Object
With the influence of Western fashion, Japanese patterns became outmoded in the late 19th century; many of the printing stencils originally intended only for dying fabrics in reserve technique were destroyed or sold to Western collectors.
