Description

Theodroa Onasch (German, dates unknown), quoting the recent “PAN” exhibition at the Driehaus Museum in Chicago, “Elegant yet orderly, Onasch’s work does not succumb to the free-flowing lines prevalent in Art Nouveau, but instead anticipates the innovative and influential graphic design trends of the early 20th century.” ¬†Like many women in the 19th century, biographical details are scarce despite the distinguished quality of her art.
