Pair of Jugendstil Armchairs by Richard Riemerschmid

About

The German architect Richard Riemerschmid was a leading exponent of the Munich Secession and designed a fascinating variety of objects: furniture, ceramics, textiles, glassware, etc. Riemerschmid's style was characterized by a straightforward simplicity unusual among Jugendstil designers (who were given to flamboyance). It is this quality which made Riemerschmid's work such an important influence on the pioneers of 20th century modernism. These armchairs were designed by Riemerschmid in 1900 with perhaps a little nostalgia for 1600, and made in the first years of the 20th century by J. Fleischauer's Söhne of Nuremburg. The beechwood of these 117-year-old chairs has a gorgeous patina of age. They are also actually quite comfortable to sit in, despite their appearance. Unusually, each chair retains its metal manufacturer's label. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a pair of these historically important but scarce chairs. Provenance: The Collection of Barry Friedman, Sotheby's, New York, November 1992, lot 82.
