Ilna Ewers-Wunderwald (1878–1957), wife of Hanns-Heinz Ewers, was a true Art Nouveau icon and Zagava proudly presents her works after they were mostly forgotten for more than one hundred years. The myth-loving artist entered transrational realms with her abundant fantasy. She was celebrated by art critics before the First World War, exhibited successfully at the Berlin Secession and her book and fashion designs were well received.
In this softcover edition (23 by 23 cm) a 32-page biography (in German!) is accompanied by over 30 historic photos and illustrations, followed by 44 full-page color plates, 13 black-and-white drawings and 34 pages with her illustrative and book design work.
A limited hardcover edition with English text will follow in autumn 2019.
There will be an exhibition of her works in the prestigious Bröhan Museum in Berlin from the 28th of February till the 16th of June 2019. (http://www.broehan-museum.de/non-classe/save-the-date/)
