urtrian the very slightest degree from the beauty of the Work produced ; so that it is possible to have a real Work of art, of Which but few examples are produced, at a very low price-say from about thirty- five Shillings ; and that Work is not a machine-made article, but one the production of Which, by his or her own hand, has been a true labour of love to the designer, rnarking a real progress in art culture. TO the Technical Academy of Vienna the architect, Otto Prutscher, and the painter, V. Schoenthoner, also owe much, but the charm of their Work consists rather in its colour than in its form. Much is to be hoped in the future from both of these talented artists, and what they have already produced proves that there has been no sacrifice of individuality, no cramping of special tendencies, such as is so much to be deprecated elsewhere, in the training they have received. OTTO PRUTSCHERS necklaces and rings are remarkable alike for the beauty and harmonious variety of their colouring. He uses enamel to a great extent, and also quite srnall precious stones. Very uncommon, too, is the Way in Which he employs metal, though only enough ofit to hold the enamel in its place. It would appear as if the artist had in his mind a vision of the Women who are to wear his Work, who are too tender and frail to carry any weight, so that the use of much metal in ornaments for them would be quite unsuitable. For a Salome or a Queen of Sheba that sort of thing is scarcely appropriate-but it is done for the softly nurtured Mignonne of the present day. The little coloured pins designed by F. Schoenthoner are also noticeable for their elegance and suit- ability for the purpose for Which they are intended. A WORD of unstinted praise must be accorded to the graceful designs of the talented Fräulein Eugenie Munk, whose skill and good taste have been devoted to the production of a great deal of very beautiful and refined jewellery. I HAVE already spoken of the Work in diamonds of Roset and Fischmeister, and I should like to refer to those two master craftsmen again in connection with some of their figural ornaments, such as buckles for belts, rings, studs for shirt fronts and cuifs, etc., worked in dull or bright gold, all of Which I consider Worthy to be spoken of as Viennese Works of art. The different masks on the studs, each with its own individual expression, really display quite remarkable talent in their designer, for they are not only thoroughly artistic but most arnusing studies in physiognomy. Unfortunately it is impossible to give in reproductions of such Work any truc idea of the subtle manner in Which the blue-green colours .7
