Modernisierte Ornamentik im Germanischen und Romanischen Stil.
Plauen: C. F. Schulz & Co., [circa 1910]. Folio 12 3/4 x 19 5/8,  title page, 20 leaves of color lithographs printed to recto only. Quarter black cloth portfolio, decorated black paper boards printed in red and gold, edges rubbed and chipped, corners chipped, with gray cloth ties. Plates have some finger marks and small stains to outer margins, slight foxing to edges, otherwise very good. A dramatic collection of German Art Nouveau or Jugendstil interior designs inspired by Romanesque architecture. The plates feature between one and nine panels, many with intricate knotted designs, both German and Romanesque floral patterns, round-headed arches, and acanthus-leaf decoration. Some incorporate animals such as deer, birds or dragons, printed in a palette of grays, greens, muted blues, reds, yellows, browns, and accented in gold. The first plate features a magnificent Angelic figure in a Romanesque architectural style. The two aesthetics are seamlessly combined to create a harmonious and palatial example of thoughtful ornamental design from the period.
